Institut Cartogràphic de Catalunya, Barcelona 8 Making Legends via Painters’ Palettes Sidonie Christophe nationwide Geographic Institute (IGN), COGIT Laboratory Saint Mandé Cedex, France summary present on-demand map layout instruments on the net don't help cartographic and semiologic principles. in addition they hardly ever supply to clients to customize their types. we advise a discussion software on the way to take the user’s wishes into consideration and to deliver the cartographic services he may well lack to boot. during this paper, we argue that on-demand map layout should still gain altogether from consumer creative capacities and from cartographic idea. Our method is composed in analysing the exploration of colors and the way shades aid the cartographic ideas. Then we recommend a method to conceive legends by way of painters’ palettes illustrated with an instance of a portray by means of Matisse. eight. 1 advent in recent times, on-demand map layout instruments on the internet were significantly extended. They suggest to load distant info, to layout new gadgets, to use predefined kinds which will conceive on-demand maps. truly on-demand map layout instruments don't help cartographic ideas. in addition they don't supply to clients to customize their types. So we outline an on-demand map as a map that's: • effective, i. e. cartographically right • pleasurable, i. e. that solutions to the conceiver wishes. the purpose of our learn is hence to aid clients to conceive genuine on-demand maps and especially to layout effective and gratifying legends on the internet. The specificity of a map in comparison to a piece of photograph paintings is to transmit an unambiguous message regarding a geographic area. Graphical symptoms at the map needs to altogether express a visible message that are supposed to be good understood by means of the clients of the map. Robinson (1952) argued that maps designed established in basic terms on a creative 82 Sidonie Christophe method are extra frequently no longer practical. He proposed to examine features of belief in order that symbolisation and layout judgements should be in line with target principles. A map may still inform the reality in a undeniable approach, via mendacity approximately convinced features (Monmonier 1991). photograph semiotic has been outlined through a few cartographers to properly use graphical variables (Robinson 1952; Bertin 1967; MacEachren 1995). It is composed in semiotics and traditional principles approximately visible variables. The photo semiology yields constraints at the map layout method yet doesn't clarify how one can create the types that fulfill all constraints. therefore, every one cartographer has his personal method to layout a map in accordance with his personal services. it is a inventive procedure that takes an important half within the map layout strategy (Krygier 1995). we need to be able to formalise the cartographic services required for the kinds definition. This bankruptcy outlines paintings being undertaken in an on going PhD Thesis within the COGIT laboratory. we're conceiving a discussion method to pilot the layout of a map by way of a person via cartographic ideas (Christophe et al. 2007). during this paper we deal with explicitly the map layout as an inventive method guided by means of principles.
