SOCR Project - Development of the SOCR Cartography Applet/Interface

Project Goals

To develop an agile and functional Java interface and an applet that integrates available SOCR resources (e.g., SOCR Charts) and provide the means to enter geo-political data and construct proportional cartography maps. In these maps, the sizes of different geographic regions, such as countries, provinces, continents, etc., appear proportional to the data provided by the user. The new applet/interface will use the fundamental SOCR development principals and be accessible via the SOCR web-server.

Background=

Many of the SOCR Charts provide advanced tools for computational and graphical exploratory data analysis. Typical geo-political maps represent the world in a flat 2D Euclidean space where the North Pole looks huge and the equator appears small (Gastner and Newman, 2004). Data obtained for different geographic, political or regional locales may be used to morph the standard world atlases into cartographic maps that represent the areas, colors or glyphs of different regions according to the (multi-modality) data. Such maps are called data-driven-cartographic maps.
