MapViewer 6의 새로운 기능과 특징

 

New Map Types

MapViewer 6 introduces three new types of thematic maps - Gradient Map, Dorling Cartogram, and Territory Map.

Gradient Map
MapViewer 6 incorporates the gridding capabilities from Surfer to interpolate between discrete measurements. The result is displayed as a continuous range of colors.

Dorling Cartogram
Cartograms represent data values by changing the size of the associated area object. The Dorling cartogram replaces the original shape with a circle. Cartograms are particularly useful when there is an inverse relationship between area and the data value. They emphasize the areas with the greater data values.

Territory Map
This type of map groups objects into territories. The grouping can be done automatically on an MxN grid, or you can manually assign objects to territories. All objects in a territory are displayed with the same drawing style. The Territory Manager displays a variety of statistical measurements of the related data values for each territory.

Export to HTML

Many customers have expressed an interest in exporting maps to HTML to publish on their web site. Now, with MapViewer 6, it's not only possible, it's simple to use! Choose HTML as the export type from the File | Export command and MapViewer saves the map as a JPG image and creates the complete HTML code to display the image.

Starting with MapViewer 5, map objects had a hyperlink attribute and the View | Hyperlink tool within MapViewer could be used to follow the link. These active hyperlinks are preserved when exporting to HTML and now, in MapViewer 6, the link names can have an abbreviation that is displayed instead of the full URL. The following map of Congressional Districts in Alabama was created using MapViewer 6 and has working links to the representative's home pages.


US Street Address Geocoding

MapViewer 6 contains the street location and address information from the United States 2000 Census TIGER/Line files. The geocoding function uses this street information to convert your street addresses into Latitude/Longitude coordinates, suitable for creating a pin map. The street files can also be loaded as a base map, for a complete solution.

Thiessen Polygons / Delaunay Triangulation

Thiessen Polygons and Delaunay Triangulation are two complementary ways of creating area objects from a set of points.

Delaunay Triangulation creates trianglular area objects with the vertices at three of the point objects. Thiessen Polygons are created by connecting perpendicular bisectors of the sides the the Delaunay triangles.

Delaunay Triangles and Thiessen Polygons (16K)

Thiessen Polygons have the characteristic that there is one area object per point and all the space within that area is closer to it's associated point than to any other point. They are a way of showing individual areas of influence around each of a set of points and can be a powerful analytical and visualization tool.


New Boundary Creation & Editing Tools

The strong set of object creation and editing tools in MapViewer is now more powerful than ever.

Convex hull (3K)  

Convex hull
Create a convex hull that surrounds a set of point, line, and/or area objects. This is handy for Surfer users to create a boundary file for blanking a grid to the extent of the input data.

Intersection points (2K)  

Intersection points
Create point objects where line and/or area objects intersect.

Enclose (2K)  

Enclose
Create area objects in regions enclosed by the boundaries of selected objects.

Divide area (3K)  

Divide area
Divide an area to create two areas with a shared border.

Difference of areas (3K)  

Difference of area
Create areas for regions where selected objects do not intersect.

Curve to points (2K)  

Curve to points
Convert a curve object into a set of point objects, one for each vertex in the curve.

Points to curve (2K)  

Points to curve
Convert a set of point objects into a curve.

Curve to area with shared border (3K)  

Curve to area with shared border
Convert a curve object into an area object by connecting with a nearby area to create a shared border.


Legend Enhancements

In prior versions of MapViewer, legend entries for map types with classes always showed the numeric range for each class. Now, in MapViewer 6, classes can be given names and those names can optionally be shown in the legend rather than the numeric values. There are also options to show the number of objects that occurred in each class and to arrange the legend entries into multiple columns.

Additional New Features

  • Many new line styles and fill patterns have been added.
  • The Property Inspector allows quick and easy access to change the properties of simple objects.
  • Customize the toolbars, menus, and window layouts according to your preference.
  • Export georeferenced bitmaps at any resolution while maintaining spatial referencing.
  • Enhanced query capabilities, including a query history, give you more control than ever.
  • Automatically reposition overlapping point and text objects.
  • New and improved analysis tools, including shortest path and bordering neighbor tools, plus several more.
  • Export a bitmap representation of your map to industy-standard PDF and EPS formats.
  • Create Data function to count the number of point objects that are located within an area object or to count the number of occurences of a data value.
  • Save and load class settings for easy reuse.
  • Pin map classification can now be based on string variables.
  • Set the map scale using a representative fraction (1:24000) and show the representative fraction in the scale bar.
  • Sort objects by their linked data values.
  • Classes are now available with flow maps.
  • And many more!

Comments From Beta Testers

  • "The Thiessen Polygons, Delauney Triangulation, and Convex Hull functions are very useful for teaching, as well as for practical applications."
  • "The ability to export to HTML and PDF will be very useful for creating content for our agency's web site."
  • "The drawing tools are more powerful than ever. Congratulations!"
  • "I regularly promote MapViewer in workshops because it is so much easier to teach and use than most other mapping software that is available."
  • "I have used MapViewer since version 1.0. It is my preferred instructional software for the secondary classroom."
  • "Yet another demonstrtation of Golden Software's singular ability to produce user-friendly, efficient and effective spatial/map presentation software."
