Map Symbology

Posted by Dave Smith On 12/06/2005 11:10:00 PM 1 comments



Working on a few things that raise questions about user interface and cartographic symbology... Integrating MetaCarta into Window to My Environment presents some interesting opportunities- I initially developed some bar graphs to show result scores- When running a keyword search against a geographic area, you get two scores- a relevance score, which tells how good of a match the search keyword is to the document, and a geoconfidence score, which tells how good of a match the location found in the document is geographically.

I'm currently adding a new level to this- experimenting with fading the result location icon, based on geoconfidence...
