The Web Mercator projection uses a modified version of the Mercator projection and has become a default map projection for web mapping.
Space-time cubes show how phenomena change over time within geographic space. In a space-time cube, each cube represents a slice of time.
In the digital cartography age, it’s easy to overlook traditional paper maps. But they still serve their purpose in our day in age.
Topographers face an uphill battle of a changing geography. These are the top 10 topographic maps built to meet the challenge of accuracy and completeness.
From cartograms to contour maps, cartographers are like heroes. And every hero has a secret. If you want to build unbeatable maps, here are 25 map types.
Airplanes travel along the true shortest route in a 3-dimensional space. This curved route is called a geodesic or great circle route.
The central meridian is the center line of longitude for projection systems. Projected coordinate systems often use it as a reference point for a x-origin.
Everyday, communities are at risk of transmissible diseases and growing pandemics like COVID-19. We use GIS to track the spread of viruses in real-time maps.
If you’re in need of a visual reference guide to map projection types, this goldmine of the top 50 global map projections used by cartographers will help.
Our ocean’s movements push large amounts of water every day. But where? See this list of ocean currents map and visualize our oceans movement and dynamics.
