By Daniel B. Carr

After greater than 15 years of improvement drawing on study in cognitive psychology, statistical photographs, desktop technology, and cartography, micromap designs have gotten a part of mainstream statistical visualizations. Bringing jointly the examine of 2 leaders during this box, Visualizing info styles with Micromaps provides the various layout diversifications and functions of micromaps, which hyperlink statistical details to an equipped set of small maps. This full-color ebook is helping readers at the same time discover the statistical and geographic styles of their information.

After illustrating the 3 major varieties of micromaps, the authors summarize the study at the back of the layout of visualization instruments that aid exploration and verbal exchange of spatial information styles. They then clarify how those learn findings should be utilized to micromap designs generally and aspect the specifics concerned with associated, conditioned, and comparative micromap designs. to check and distinction their reasons, obstacles, and strengths, the ultimate bankruptcy applies all 3 of those concepts to a similar demographic information for Louisiana ahead of and after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
