Disclaimer Remember: Cartography is "The workmanship & exploration of maps and mapping" so . . . Parts of this class might be more similar to an A R T class affected by the preferences, aversions, and capacities of the instructor!

Slide 3

"Outline and Layout" What we'll cover today The Map Design Process Map Size, Orientation Scale, Content Map Layout Title, Legend, Scale Bar, Inset Map, Date, Informational Note, and Company Identifier.

Slide 4

"Outline and Layout" The Map Design Process Choosing a Map Size Elements of a guide arrangement The Design Filter Planar Organization of Visual Elements

Slide 5

"Delineate and Layout" Choosing a Map Size First pose these inquiries: What does the end client need or need? Can you physically deliver the coveted size? (i.e. yield impediments?) Are there distributing, encircling, or overlaying confinements or restrictions? Will the information be readable or valuable at the craved size?

Slide 6

"Outline and Layout" Map Size Rule of Thumb If left to you to decide delineate, create it at the littlest size plausible.

"Delineate and Layout" Elements of a Map Composition Mapped and Unmapped Areas Borders and Neatlines Graticules and Grids Map Symbols Place Names and Labeling Title and Subtitle Legend Scale Bar Inset Map Credit Note Date Logo North Arrow

Slide 12

Map Layout What makes this a poor design?

Slide 14

Title Titles are critical guide components, and sort size ought to be a few circumstances the span of the sort on the guide itself. A subtitle, in littler sort, is fitting for longer titles or more intricate guide subjects. What Where When

Slide 15

Title - Usually draws consideration by ideals of its overwhelming size; serves to center consideration around the essential substance of the guide; might be precluded where subtitles are given however are not some portion of the guide itself.

Slide 16

Adding Titles in ArcMap

Slide 17

Legends The legend is the realistic guide that you give to your gathering of people. You don't generally need to give images to the majority of the data utilized as a part of your maps.

Slide 18

Legend - The key image referent depiction on the guide; subordinate to the title, however a key component in guide perusing; serves to portray every single obscure image utilized.

Slide 19

Adding Legends in ArcMap

Slide 20

Scale Large scale maps ought to dependably incorporate a scale. Maps that educate the client about contrasts in separation or territory ought to likewise incorporate a scale. Little scale maps may not require a scale, as scale shifts significantly with world or mainland projections. Verbal and visual scales sound good to the normal peruser. Incorporate a visual scale if the guide will be reproduced or resized.

Slide 21

Map Scale - Usually included on a topical guide; it gives the peruser essential data with respect to direct relations on the guide; can be realistic, verbal, or communicated as a RF.

Slide 22

"Delineate and Layout" More on Map Scale For instance: 1/24,000 or 1:24,000 scale One (1) unit on the guide speaks to 24,000 units on the ground (1 inch = 24,000 inches which compares to 1 inch = 2000 feet). Outline is a unit of estimation on the guide identified with the fitting number of same units on the Earth's surface and is generally expressed as a delegate division.

Slide 24

Inset Maps

Slide 25

Inset Map or Location Diagram – This illuminates the guide client of the setting of the guide, i.e. the 10,000 foot view . This will shield the client from guessing the area of the guide .

Slide 29

Explanatory Text

Slide 30

Sources and Credits

Slide 31

Informational or Credit Note - Can Include the guide's information source, a sign of their unwavering quality, dates, and other logical material.

Slide 32

Date – Use if the season of a guide's distribution is a variable. This may likewise function admirably as a component of the Sub-title.

Slide 33

Adding Explanatory Text in ArcMap Text instruments in ArcMap could be better Insert Text from the menu has extremely restricted alternatives Instead utilize the content devices on the draw menu (see beneath) Use New Rectangle Text apparatus in the event that you need content wrapping

Slide 34

Company Identifier or Logo – Take recognition for a job well done. Make a point to utilize an astounding logo, particularly to partner organizations.

Slide 35

Directional Indicator

Slide 36

Indicating Direction in ArcMap change outline introduction in information outline properties

Slide 37

"Delineate and Layout" Elements of a Map Composition Borders and Neatlines - Both discretionary; outskirts can serve to control eye development; neatlines are better lines than fringes, drawn inside them and frequently rendered as a component of the graticule; utilized for the most part for embellishment.

Slide 39

Adding Borders in ArcMap

Slide 40

"Delineate and Layout" Graticules and Grids - Often excluded from topical maps today; ought to be incorporated if their locational data is urgent to the guide's motivation; generally regarded as foundation or auxiliary data. Matrices demonstrate a similar data, yet show it over the body of the guide and not simply along the neatline.

Slide 41

Adding Grids & Graticules in ArcMap Grids& Graticules are included the information outline properties Coordinate qualities will be added to the limit of guide

Slide 43

"Delineate and Layout" Feature Content "Excessively numerous components are excessively, too little elements ain't sufficient" Rules of Thumb Find an adjust that depicts enough data without making the guide seem jumbled or occupied. Demonstrate the fundamental elements alongside enough supporting elements for clearness.

Slide 44

"Delineate and Layout" Focus of Attention Readers eye ordinarily takes after a way from upper left through the optical focus to lower right. Purpose of most noteworthy characteristic accentuation is the place a line of space division converges either the concentration or field circles of consideration.

Slide 45

Map Layout: Focus – eye development

Slide 46

Optical Center Geometric focus "Outline and Layout" Balance The two focuses of a picture space. The architect ought to orchestrate the guide's components around the normal (optical) focus, instead of the geometric focus.

Slide 47

Map Layout: Visual Center Crosshatched zone speaks to visual focus

Slide 48

Map Layout: Balance

Slide 49

"Delineate and Layout" Visual Balance Visual adjust comes about because of two main considerations: weight and course. Visual weight relies on upon area. Components at the focal point of an organization pull less weight than those lying of the tracks of the basic net. A question in the upper piece of a structure is heavier than one in the lower part. Questions on the privilege of a sythesis seem heavier than those on the left. The heaviness of a protest increments in extent to its separation from the focal point of the piece.
