Research output: Contribution to journalArticleProfessional


The most commonly used types of maps are road maps or topographic maps. However, to convey specialized information, such as statistical data associated with various regions, cartographers use special purpose maps. This note describes some algorithmic questions that arise from the automated generation of two types of these maps, namely maps that contain diagrams and proportional symbol maps. We also sketch some solution strategies and show the output generated by our algorithms.
