Cartographical visualisation for communicating geoscientific findings: a modern computational approach – Online First – Springer

JavaScript is currently disabled, this site works much better if you enable JavaScript in your browser. Cartographical visualisation is very important in communicating geoscientific findings. It allows depiction of a wide range of interrelated natural features and processes operating within the Earth system. Cartography allows visualisation and dissemination of research findings in a more accessible manner. Well-designed and aesthetically pleasing cartographical illustrations can provide significant visual impact, and visually appealing cartographical illustrations can effectively assist in publishing research findings and technological advances. Production of cartographical illustrations is one of the most important techniques for visualising geoscientific phenomena. It allows amalgamating mapping efforts and compilation of geoscientific results. Computerised cartography allows generation and management of illustration products efficiently and effectively. Well-designed cartographical maps and illustrations can be easily understood by a wide range of people. Thus, research findings can be disseminated effectively to a diverse range of audiences including policy makers and the general public. Particularly, it can be used for producing interpretative illustrations for unveiling the fascinating and much less known correlated geological events over space.
