Cartographic forms of expression connected with multimedia are technologies that interactively integrate image, video, audio, and animations. Multimedia cartography is a branch of cartography that focuses on the utilization of multimedia for the visualization and communication of data relating to space. The multidimensionality of spatial data is best presented using multimedia, for the user may more efficiently obtain and process information when he/she is forced to utilize multiple senses. The greater the interactivity between the data and the user, the greater the level of engagement with such multimedia.
This Special Issue focuses on the efficiency and attractiveness of the media for the visualization of spatial features and their information potential. We would like to invite you to submit your work exploring different media for cartography: film, animation, music, graphics, photos, sound, virtual and augmented reality, and others.
Contributions can address the following topics:
- Maps as the core of multimedia presentation
- Information potential of multimedia
- Medium efficiency and medium attractiveness for the visualization of spatial features
- Rules of map design for multimedia cartography
- Media for cartography: film, animation, music, graphics, photos, audio, virtual and augmented reality, and others
- Tools for designing specific cartographic multimedia products
- Statistic and topographic maps at medium scales
