Cartographic Perspectives https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal <p><em>Cartographic Perspectives</em> (<em>CP</em>) is the&nbsp;<strong>open access</strong> journal of the North American Cartographic Information Society (<a href="http://www.nacis.org/index.cfm?x=1">NACIS</a>) and is devoted to the study and practice of Cartography in all of its diversity.&nbsp;<em>CP</em> is published three times a year and includes peer-reviewed research on Cartography and Geovisualization (broadly defined), technical notes and tutorials on new methods, articles on library collections, reviews of books and atlases, and novel maps. All submitted articles are reviewed and returned to authors within&nbsp;<strong>6-8 weeks</strong>. In the past three years,&nbsp;<em>CP </em>has an average rejection rate of 65%. All graphics included in accepted articles are published in full color, at no cost to authors.</p> <p>We are pleased to announce the&nbsp;<strong>2020&nbsp;</strong><strong>student paper competition </strong>with a<strong> $1350 </strong>prize for the winning entry.

The large volumes of data generated by these individuals, when aggregated and anonymized, can be used by city planners, Departments of Transportation, advocacy groups, and researchers to help make cities safer and more efficient. This opportunity, however, is constrained by the technical skills and resources available to those tasked with assessing bicycling behavior in urban centers. This paper aims to address the question of how to design cartographic interfaces to serve as mediated platforms for making large amounts of individual bicycling data more accessible, usable, and actionable. Principles of cartographic representation, geovisual analytics techniques, and best practices in user interface/experience design are employed to arrive at an effective visualization tool for a broad urban planning audience. We use scenario-based design methods to encapsulate knowledge of map use practice gleaned from the development process, and conduct a post-implementation, two-part user study with seven domain experts to further assess the usability and utility of the interactive mapping tool</span></span><span style="font-family: Times New Roman, serif;"><span style="font-size: medium;">.</span></span></p> Jonathan K.

This proliferation of mapmaking technologies, often developed from a software engineering rather than a cartographic foundation, creates a series of challenges for cartography education, research, and practice.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Times New Roman, serif;"><span lang="en-GB">To address these challenges, we introduce a JavaScript-based open-source framework for web-based cartography and data visualization. It is built on top of existing open web standards that are already in intensive use for online mapmaking today, but provides a framework that is firmly based on cartographic and visualization theory rather than software engineering concepts. Specifically, we adopt concepts from Bertin’s </span><span lang="en-GB"><em>Semiology of Graphics</em></span><span lang="en-GB"> and Wilkinson’s </span><span lang="en-GB"><em>Grammar of Graphics</em></span><span lang="en-GB"> to create a language with a limited number of core concepts and verbs that are combined in a declarative style of “writing” visualizations. In this paper, we posit a series of design guidelines that have informed our approach, and discuss how we translate these tenets into a software implementation and framework with specific use cases and examples. We frame the development of the software and the discussion specifically in the context of the use of such tools in cartography education.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: Times New Roman, serif;"><span lang="en-GB">With this framework, we hope to provide an example of a software for web-based data visualization that is in sync with cartographic theories and objectives. Such approaches allow for potentially greater cartographic flexibility and creativity, as well as easier adoption in cartography courses.</span></span></p> Ate Poorthuis, Lucas van der Zee, Grace Guo, Jo Hsi Keong, Bianchi Dy Copyright (c) https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1645 Wed, 02 Dec 2020 00:00:00 -0800 Bending Lines: Maps and Data from Distortion to Deception https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1689 Garrett Dash Nelson Copyright (c) https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1689 Thu, 24 Dec 2020 00:00:00 -0800 Normalizing the Normal Map https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1669 Charles Preppernau Copyright (c) https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1669 Thu, 12 Nov 2020 00:00:00 -0800 Sharing Stories of Tragedy: Mapping Narratives of the Kent State Shooting https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1665 Jennifer Mapes, Sara Koopman Copyright (c) https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1665 Sun, 27 Sep 2020 00:00:00 -0700 Review of Water: an Atlas https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1635 Abraham Kaleo Parrish Copyright (c) 2020 Cartographic Perspectives https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1635 Sun, 12 Jul 2020 00:00:00 -0700 Review of Food: An Atlas https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1651 Nat Case Copyright (c) https://cartographicperspectives.org/index.php/journal/article/view/1651 Sat, 22 Aug 2020 00:00:00 -0700 Review of Black Lives 1900: W.
