A hybrid GRASP heuristic to construct effective drawings of proportional symbol maps

Rafael G. Cano, Guilherme Kunigami, Cid C. de Souza, Pedro J. de Rezende
2013 Computers & Operations Research  
Proportional symbol map is a cartographic tool that employs symbols to represent data associated with specific locations.  ...  Each symbol is drawn at the location of an event and its size is proportional to the numerical data collected at that point on the map. The symbols considered here are opaque disks.  ...  Fig. 1 .Fig. 2 . 12 Proportional symbol maps showing the population of cities in the northeast region of Brazil.  ...

2007 Gerontechnology  
Age-related deficits in visual attention may impair ability to use grasping reactions to recover balance by impeding the acquisition, processing and storage of required VSI.  ...  Instead, it appears that the CNS may continually monitor the environment and store salient VSI for use if and when a loss of balance occurs.  ...  Acknowledgments Funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and the Canadian Foundation for Innovation.

A Common Representation of Spatial Features Drives Action and Perception: Grasping and Judging Object Features within Trials

Jens H. Christiansen, Jeppe Christensen, Thor Grünbaum, Søren Kyllingsbæk, Krish Sathian
2014 PLoS ONE  
Spatial features of an object can be specified using two different response types: either by use of symbols or motorically by directly acting upon the object.  ...  Here we show that when motoric and symbolic responses are made within the same trial, the probability of making the same symbolic and motoric response is well above chance for both length and orientation  ...  type of stimulus feature (arbitrary because the experimenter could just as well have decided to use the reverse mapping).  ...

The Aztec Templo Mayor — A Visualization

Antonio Serrato-Combe
2003 International Journal of Architectural Computing  
As a case study, the paper presents the theoretical reconstruction of the Aztec Templo Mayor in Mexico (1).The presentation describes how a variety of digital approaches was used to grasp and appreciate  ...  In other words, our ability to explore, to interpret and to appropriately use digital tools needs to aspire to greater and more penetrating abilities to reconstruct the past.  ...  Opacity maps were generated to specify areas of opacity and transparency.These special maps were used to produce shadow effects in certain buildings and landscape elements.  ...

Map Making and Map Reading

Robert Marshall Brown
1904 Journal of geography (Houston)  
M A P DRAWING Before niap reading is perfected, a conception of the error of the maps in constant use is necessary.  ...  Writing on the maps should not be encouraged when the symbol is definite. The writing of "street" on the symbol for the same, "river" on its symbol, defeats the use of the sign language.  ...  Thus the slight irregularities in the curved coast line between A and B were observed and mapped. 2. 2.5 8.6 11.5 14.3 16 12.8 (rock) 26 25 19.9 (undercutting) 107 paces.  ...

Recognizing Object Affordances to Support Scene Reasoning for Manipulation Tasks [article]

Fu-Jen Chu, Ruinian Xu, Chao Tang, Patricio A. Vela
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Unfortunately, the top performing affordance recognition methods use object category priors to boost the accuracy of affordance detection and segmentation.  ...  Thus, integrating affordance-based reasoning into symbolic action plannning pipelines would enhance the flexibility of robot manipulation.  ...  In effect, the specificity of object priors limits generalizability.  ...

Problems of Cartographic Design in Geographic Information Systems for Transportation

R. Gordon Kennedy
1999 Cartographic Perspectives  
Conventional cartographic treatment of route features is reviewed in the context of the mapping challenges introduced by GIS-T.  ...  Cartographic requirements are specified for mapping route-based data and basic design issues are identified.  ...  Line patterns might be varied in proportion to a data attribute, but is such a symbol effective? Could continuously varying hue be used to represent interval or ratio data on a line?  ...
