The work presented here is an approach on the subject of Literary Cartography, which deals with the topic of space in Literature as well as with the relationships that are formed between the literary and the real world. The aim of the work was to make the subject of Literary Cartography more widely known in the Greek academic circles. It was develo...
Presentation
Η χαρτογραφική τεκμηρίωση των μονών και των εκκλησιών στην περιοχή του Πόντου μέσα από ιστορικές πηγές και κείμενα, η οργάνωση της περιγραφικής τους πληροφορίας σε βάση δεδομένων και η απεικόνισή τους σε χάρτη μέσω της ανάπτυξης ενός γεωγραφικού συστήματος πληροφοριών, το οποίο συνδέει την χωρική με την περιγραφική πληροφορία και δίνει τη δυνατότητ...
Chapter
In this paper a new revised undergraduate course on Thematic Cartography (TC) is presented as a 5 ECTS compulsory core course of the 300 ECTS undergraduate curriculum of a relevant European University engineering School leading to a five years engineering degree, comparable to the MEng degree, after the submission of the diploma dissertation. The p...

The use of alternative map projections or cartographic depictions of geospace, by means of transforming or distorting the conventional geometry, is often witnessed in Cartography, when the improvement of geospatial perception is sought, especially in areas with dense information. In this context, the present work is an attempt to create an alternat...
Conference Paper
A prominent work in the 19th century's cartographic co‐operation between Greece and Germany is the so called Archaeological Mapping of Athens, Attica and their surroundings, by E. Curtious and J.A. Kaupert (1862‐1897. The work, entitled “Karten von Attika”, is actually a sequence of map series compiled in three different "technical" scales 1:12500,...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
During the second half of the 19th century an interesting cartographic “interplay” takes place between Greece and Germany, within a broader context of an already well-established greco-germanic cartographic tradition. A prominent work in this 19th century cartographic co-operation is the so called Archaeological Mapping of Athens, Attica and their...
Article
Full-text available
The map sheets of the Generalkarte, result of the Third Austro-Hungarian Mapping (late 19th century), are of particular importance to the modern Greek cartographic heritage, because they constituted the initial cartographic tools in the northern part of Greece, after its liberation and incorporation in the Greek state (early 20th century). The Gene...

Archaeology is a science where geographical and spatial factors are of capital importance; in this context Geo-visualization and Archaeology provide interesting challenges for each other and they can both benefit from a combined approach of their interests. Archaeological excavations in particular constitute an excellent field for geo-visualization...
Article
Full-text available
Maps with archaeological themes constitute a distinct area of cartographic interest. Even before the era of scientific archaeology (which started in the 19 th century), archaeological thematic subjects were depicted on maps, in one way or another. The Greek world and its history and archaeology become a popular map subject, starting from the 15 th...

Across a range of archaeological projects in Northern Greece, a context-based system, which has much in common with similar stratigraphic methods applied elsewhere in the world, is in use to record the excavation process. Here, we discuss a formal data model and complete digital workflow for the documentation of this process in 3D using the prehist...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The excavation project of Paliambela Kolindros, Greece, in the past five years has developed a digital recording methodology through 2D photogrammetry that has resulted in the: • systematic collection of excavation unit and artefact co-ordinates • fast and detailed production of digital excavation plans and sections • increase in the photographic d...
Chapter
At the end of the sixties Hägerstrand introduced a space-time model which included features such as a Space-Time-Path, and a Space-Time-Prism. From a visualization perspective the Space-Time-Cube was the most prominent element in Hagerstrand’s a pproach. However, when the concept was introduced the options to create the graphics were limited to man...

Full-text available
During the last decade the contribution of GIS technology in recording and analysis of archaeological data has been significant. Although, however, the information that archaeologists record has a deeply 3D character, the analyses within GIS packages rely upon a 2D abstraction of reality. The approaches proposed so far for 3D archaeological GISs re...

We provide a research agenda for the International Cartographic Association s Commission on Visualization and Virtual Environment working group on Cognitive and Usability Issues in Geovisualization. Developments in hardware and software have led to (and will continue to stimulate) novel methods for visualizing geospatial data. It is our belief that...
Article
A system for managing and visualizing archaeological finds and their spatio-temporal properties is presented. The system is an attempt to combine archaeologists' interest to keep track of time with interests related to the representation and visualization of the spatio-temporal component of archaeological excavations, with the help of cartographic...
Article
Inverse Photogrammetry is used as a tool for visualizing projected developments or past situations within an existing environment. Usually traditional photogrammetric practice is followed with respect to data input, processing and output of inverse photogrammetric products. Since the purpose is visual inspection and overview rather than strict metr...
Chapter
A typical characteristic of cartography is that although one of the oldest disciplines on Earth, it is also one among the first to adapt to new technological developments and make use of their methods and techniques. The case of multimedia is a relatively recent example of this: use of multimedia in cartography has increased during the last decade....
Article
During the nineties important challenges to cartography will be related to mapping spatial data's multi-dimensional and temporal component. From a cartographic point of view it is necessary to look at the implications of the use of animated maps. The paper concentrates on communicative aspects of the spatio-temporal map. In order to obtain some con...

Χρόνος υλοποίησης: Ιανουάριος-Μάρτιος 2017 Στο πλαίσιο της Δομής Δια Βίου Μάθησης του Α.Π.Θ. θα υλοποιηθεί κατά το ακαδημαϊκό έτος 2016-2017 Πρόγραμμα Επιμόρφωσης/Κατάρτισης με τίτλο «Συστήματα Γεωγραφικών Πληροφοριών (GIS) για αρχαιολογικές εφαρμογές» Σκοπός του προγράμματος είναι να εξοικειώσει πτυχιούχους αρχαιολόγους και υπαλλήλους του Υπουργείου Πολιτισμού και Αθλητισμού όλων των ειδικοτήτων (αρχαιολόγοι, ιστορικοί, μουσειολόγοι, ιστορικοί τέχνης, καθώς και τοπογράφοι, αρχιτέκτονες, και πολιτικοί μηχανικοί, συντηρητές κ.α.) με τις βασικές έννοιες, τον τρόπο λειτουργίας και τις δυνατότητες των Συστημάτων Γεωγραφικών Πληροφοριών (GIS) στην αρχαιολογική πράξη από την ανασκαφή, στη μελέτη των αρχαιολογικών καταλοίπων, στη διαχείριση και, τέλος, στην παρουσίαση του πολιτισμικού πλούτου στο επιστημονικό και στο ευρύ κοινό. Το περιεχόμενο του εκπαιδευτικού προγράμματος έχει σχεδιαστεί έτσι ώστε να καλύπτει όλες τις ουσιαστικές και ουσιώδεις γνωστικές και μεταγνωστικές δεξιότητες που απαιτούνται σε ένα χρήστη Σ.Γ.Π. Για αυτό το λόγο, αφιερώνεται σημαντικό μέρος του προγράμματος (20 διδ. ώρες) στην κατανόηση των βασικών αρχών σχεδιασμού βάσεων δεδομένων και στην εκμάθηση υλοποίησης βάσεων δεδομένων σε περιβάλλον Microsoft Access, στην γνωριμία και εξοικείωση με βασικές έννοιες της γεωγραφίας, της χαρτογραφίας και ανάλυσης δεδομένων και, τέλος, στην εκμάθηση σε ρυθμό που να επιτρέπεται η αποτελεσματική αφομοίωση του περιβάλλοντος και των εργαλείων της εφαρμογής.
