Sample text

The support media used for maps also changed: some were intended to be viewed on screen, while others were intended to be printed with adapted constructions upstream. This variety of transformations, brought about by the arrival of computers and the switch to digital technology, led to new directions being taken in cartography. 2. Consequences and directions taken by cartography Generally speaking, computer-aided cartography evidently improved rapidity and reproducibility and it became easier to carry out revisions and updates.

Feldman’s definition may be completed as follows: digital multimedia is “the integration into a single system of data, text, graphic art, pictures, sound, spoken narration, animation and/or video, present in a digital environment (computer) on which the user can control navigation to a variable degree” [NAS 99]. The term [digital] multimedia is therefore linked to the communication of information and as such is associated with the notion of “generalized exchanges” introduced by V. Bush in 1945 [BUS 45].

It is best to avoid there being an excessive amount that the user would not be able to master. Thus we can see that the characteristics of interactivity are multiple, which explains why interactive maps vary considerably in terms of quality and their possibilities. But thanks to the tools available, users themselves can choose their level of access to geographical information and how it is represented. Interactive cartography is thus opening up a new field of experimentation, for cartographers and for users alike [ASC 94], but with variable levels of freedom.
