6. Bivariate mapping

  • 2 attributes combined in the same thematic map
  • 2
  • single attribute on map
  • info about regions

7. Bipolar scheme

  • Interval
  • Diverging scheme
  • Qualitative scheme
  • sequential scheme

8. Colour intensity

  • Lightness/darkness
  • Saturation
  • Electromagnetic energy wavelength

9. Vector data is

  • Representation of the world as; points, lines and polygons
  • GIS data
  • "representation of the world as a surface divided into regular grid of cells
  • spatial data

10. True point data

  • size of areas of point symbol
  • Area of point symbols
  • Data measured at point locations e.g. temp @ weather stations
  • collected over areas but conceived as of being located at points for purposes of symbolization

11. Spatial data and attribute data is;

  • Some what available
  • Sparsely available
  • Widely available
  • Limited

12. Georeferencing is'

  • Correcting attribute data
  • Correcting spatial data
  • Correcting remote sensing images of moving geometric distortion by motion of sensors or earth
  • Tabular and/textual data describing characteristics of map feature

13. Distance cartogram

  • Real world distances distorted to reflect an attribute
  • Scale administative units as a function of the value of an attribute

14. 2 major views of maps

  • As communicative tools and social construbctions
  • As analyse, manipulation tools

15. Medieval Europe dipicited what city as the centre of the world

  • Jerusalem
  • London
  • Marrakesh
  • Loughborough

16. Map projections

  • Transform the curved 3D of the Earth onto a flat, 2D plane - where some distances are stretched and some are shortened
  • Transform the flat 2D of the Earth onto curved a, 3D plane - where some distances are stretched and some are shortened

17. Aristole suggested the Earth was a sphere, but what observations supported his theory?

  • Ships got bigger as they went over the horizon and the moon is spherical
  • Based on the curvature of the Earth
  • Ships got smaller as they went over the horizon and the moon is spherical
  • Sun is spherical

18. Flow map

  • Associated with the function of the value of an attributed
  • Depicits the linear movement of phenomenon between geographic locations
  • Based on uniformity shaped symbol of lines

19. Mercator invented map projections, great for navigation but what was the consequence?

  • It causes distortion of large objects near the poles, causing small objects to appear larger so Europe is over-emphasized
  • It caused the distortion of large objects, closer to the poles. So Europe is over-emphasized
  • It causes distortion of large objects near the equator, causing large objects to appear larger so Europe is over-emphasized
  • It causes distortion of large objects near the equator, causing small objects to appear larger so Europe is over-emphasized

20. Meridans

  • a circle of constant longitude passing through a given place on the earth's surface and the terrestrial poles.
  • Circle crossing equator to tropics
  • Constant latitude
