A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
In the context of custom map design, handling more artistic and expressive tools has been identified as a carto-graphic need, in order to design stylized and expressive maps. Based on previous works on style formalization, an approach for specifying the map style has been proposed and experimented for particular use cases. A first step deals with t...
This presentation paper resumes recent results on an extension of the cartographic pipeline in GIS to integrate expressive rendering techniques, in order to increase the aesthetics and expressivity of maps . They are implemented in the form of shaders which can be called and parameterized from a style file following the OGC style specifications....
Cartographic design requires controllable methods and tools to produce maps that are adapted to users’ needs and preferences. The formalized rules and constraints for cartographic representation come mainly from the conceptual framework of graphic semiology. Most current Geographical Information Systems (GIS) rely on the Styled Layer Descriptor and...
