Interacting with Geospatial Technologies provides an introduction to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and usability aspects of Geographical Information Technologies---from Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to web mapping applications. The book provides a clear introduction to the principles of HCI, a discussion about those special usability aspects of GIS which designers and developers need to take into account when developing such systems, and it offers a set of tried and tested frameworks, matrices and techniques that can be used within GIS projects.
This introductory text covers a range of topics, from the cognitive models of geographical representation to interface design. It provides the reader with frameworks and techniques that can be used and case studies in which these techniques have been used for computer mapping application.
