Options and recommandations related to further development of an Espon Cartographic Language

Abstract : In this 5th part of Espon Cartographic Language Final Report, our aim is to identify good practices, as well in the development of interactive cartographic environments such as atlases, as in innovative cartographic constructions. Our proposals target several levels: - The level of applications themselves: which functionalities have to be use, for what applications and what objectives? -The level of cartographic representations, meaning the possibilities to introduce elements of animation and interactivity in maps, depending on data and objectives: what innovations for which representation? To achieve such aims, we use two types of resources: - a collection of interactive atlases, considered as the most representative of the diversity in european statistical atlases, which we have analyzed and compared. - the collection of maps presented in Task 4, that we propose to enrich with functions of interaction and animation. The first part of Task 5 deals with recommendations, coming from a comparative analysis of european statistical atlases. These recommendations depend on the type of environment to be made (environment of visualization, analysis or exploration), and on the desired interactivity level. The second part deals with recommendations to create interactive and animated maps. They are illustrated by concrete proposals, in the form of summary datasheet. The final part deals with a comparison of computer tools that can be used to make innovative cartographic applications.
