The purpose of this article is to report a study aimed at systematic assessment of the functionality of commercially available software for the automatic generation of area cartograms. The issue of the wide choice of algorithms developed over the years for generating various types of surfaces has also been raised. (called also Cartograms can also b...
Article
Full-text available
The author discusses new classifications of cartograms. Cartographic anamorphoses terminology and a multi-level classification, including not only cartograms but also anamorphical projections, have been proposed. The selected area cartograms’ classes were discussed in detail and compared.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The authors analysed currently distinguished types of animated cartographic anamorphoses and proposed its classification based on 7 criteria: mathematical bases, transformed object, methods of transformation, continuity, graphic presentation, grid transformation and location of the main distortion point. The analysis of possibilities of usage of st...

In assessing the correctness of the development of area cartograms, two approaches can be distinguished: qualitative and quantitative. The qualitative approach compares descriptively the features of selected cartograms, e.g. topology, shape and orientation. In the quantitative approach, indicators are developed that can measurably indicate differen...

W dzisiejszych czasach można zaobserwować zmiany zachodzące w korzystaniu z danych geoprzestrzennych, m.in. w sposobie ich udostępniania. Wyraźnie zmiany te zauważalne są podczas korzystania z systemów opracowanych kilka lat temu. Obecnie użytkownicy częściej korzystają z danych w formie np. WMS, niż pobierają dane na własny komputer. Przykładem sy...

An area cartogram is one of the cartographic presentation forms. It is a unique way of presenting statistical data, in which the surface of the individual spatial units is proportional to the value of the phenomenon. Due to its specificity, the area cartogram is an interesting way of graphical representation of phenomena, in particular, the demogra...

Głównym celem pracy było wskazanie, która z klas anamorfoz poiwerzchniowych ciąłych może byc użyteczna dla uczniów szkół ponadgimnazjlanych (ponadpodstawowych). Zastosowanie anamorfoz powierzchniowych ciągłych w nauczaniu geografii w szkołach ponadpodstawowych wpisuje się w zapisy nowej podstawy programowej (z dnia 30.01.2018), w szczególności w z...
Article

The authors present a comparative analysis of presentation of build-up areas with conventional symbols on 60 civil European topographic maps. The above-mentioned maps are in different scales, from 1:10,000 to 1:100,000, and have been published in nineteen European countries and the autonomous community of Catalonia. The analysis has proved that the...
Presentation
Full-text available
In the presentation, I discuss how to present the results of elections in three countries: USA, UK and Poland. Most often, the results of presidential elections are presented by choropleth or diagram maps. The development of GIS software and statistical methods has made it possible to use more complex forms of data presentation on statistical maps,...

Głównym celem artykułu jest przybliżenie nauczycielom przedmiotów przyrodniczych pojęcia błędnych przekonań. Przedstawiona jest funkcjonalna typologia błędnych przekonań, a także ich przykłady z biologii, chemii, fizyki i geografii, zktórymi mogą się zetknąć nauczyciele gimnazjalni i licealni. Podane są także przykłady zadań, które mogą posłużyć do...

The issue discussed in the presentation is value-by-area cartogram, one of the cartographic presentation forms. It is a unique way of presenting statistical data, in which the surface of individual spatial units is proportional to the value of the phenomenon. Due to its specificity, value-by-area cartogram is an interesting way of graphical represe...

Project
Basic planning documents required by the Water Framework Directive and the Water Law include: National Water and Environmental Programme (NWEP) as well as River Basin Management Plans (RBMPs). National Water and Environmental Programme defines basic and supplementary measures aiming at improving or maintaining good status of waters, while its summary is a key element of the River Basin Management Plans.
Project
The GAUSS project will show how Satellite Earth Observation data, combined with other data sources, can be used to develop the next generation of operational statistical services. It will develop best practices for incorporating such data into new services based on the concept of Trusted Smart Statistics.
Project
Programme designed to support UN Member States, including cities, in achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11 to “make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable,” and to implement the New Urban Agenda (NUA) through sustained utilization of Earth observation (EO) data and applications. The Programme aims to develop a customizable and continually updated toolkit on the integration of Earth observation and geospatial information into the urban monitoring and reporting processes on SDG targets and indicators based on inputs from UN Member States and cities.
