1 Introduction to Geographic Information Systems Spring 2013 (INF 385T-28437) Dr. David Arctur Lecturer, Research Fellow University of Texas at Austin Lectures 3-4 Jan 31, 2013 GIS Outputs, Geodatabase

2 GIS Outputs Outline  Map audiences  Map layouts  Map scales  Multiple maps and output pages  Reports and graphs  Map animation  Exporting maps  Other map outputs 2 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

3 Map audiences Map use:ExplorationPresentation Audience:Trained analystGeneral public Purpose:Visual thinkingCommunication Advantages:GraphicalBelievable Granularity:FineCoarse Symbols:AbstractMimetic capital railroad 3 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

4 Map layout elements  Main map size and location  Map title and subtitle  What, where, and when  Brief but descriptive  Legend  No need to label it Legend. Everyone will know what it is (this eliminates “chart junk”)  Data sources, credits  Rectangular boundary (neatline) 4 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

5 Map layout elements  North arrow  Keep simple, discrete (avoid “compass rose”)  Graphic scale bar  Other elements of “map furniture”  Inset maps  Data tables  Charts  Additional text  Photographs 5 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

6 Layout example 6 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

7 Layout example 7 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

8 Fonts  Style  Simple and legible  Formal or informal  Number of fonts  Placement, deconfliction  Halos  Contrasts background 8 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

9 Bad layout 9 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

10 Good layout 10 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

11 MAP SCALES Lecture 3 11 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

12 Map scales 12 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3 1:5,000 is large scale 1:50,000,000 is small scale

13 Map scales  Map scale ratios  Dimensionless  Used with any linear measurement unit, such as feet, meters, or miles  Graphic scale, or “scale bar”  Graphic representation of map scale  Places a line on the map with ground distances marked, such as 10 miles, 20 miles, etc. 13 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

14 Scale 1:100,000 Scale 14 INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

15 Scale 1:24, INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3

16 Scale 1:10, INF385T(28437) – Spring 2013 – Lecture 3
