Laminated maps for the home or office have many distinct benefits for the condition of the map and also the appearance. Maps can be found in the home and in the office and they look visually appealing and part of the decor, but there is nothing worse than a map that suffers from general wear and tear, especially a map that is expensive or one that is not widely circulated. Generally speaking, maps and other items do suffer some kind of mishap, such as tearing and can lack stability if not properly protected. Re-usable ones are vital for those who heavily depend on them, no doubt important not just to keep using one map continuously, but also helps those who are on a budget and who choose not to spend money buying new maps only to have them ruined in the future by common tears, water and other dirt. Smeared ink is a big problem, especially if you only have one map to rely on, and there is no doubt anyone would prefer a more durable map.
Whether you use pen and paper or the latest mind mapping software, the simple elegance of this technique has evolved into a powerful tool for copywriters, authors or anyone who needs to organise ideas or think more creatively. Have you ever spent hours writing meeting notes yet felt that the really important information remains buried deep within a mass of minutes? Or, maybe youve wrestled with complex information for a report, website or a newsletter. If that sounds familiar, the answer, as many other people have discovered, may lie in the simple but effective technique called mind mapping. Mind mapping in marketing, technical writing and PR Twenty years ago, before I became a copywriter based in Gloucestershire, England, I discovered mind mapping, got hooked and soon started using this simple tool in my marketing, technical writing and PR work. Since then, mind mapping has become an integral part of my working and personal life, completely changing the way I think, organise information and plan my copywriting. Whether you mind map on the back of an envelope or with mind mapping software such as Freemind, the technique could change your writing life too.
How to Read a GPS Mapping System The most common way for a GPS receiver to display your global location is with a plot screen, using a series of waypoints in the area. So that you can track your position logically, you should always set the plot screen directions so that north is up, or towards the top of your device so it reads like a map. The device will allow you to navigate through the GPS map, zooming in and out or even shifting the maps location. The GPS database will allow you to save various waypoints, typically at least one hundred, and label them with brief descriptions. Your waypoints and their names can help plan routes quickly in the future.GPS devices come with a map datum already installed. This is a basic representation of the land formations in the country or area where the unit was designed. GPS units manufactured in the United States are installed with North American map datum, so it is necessary to install additional software if the unit will be used outside the country.
Marketing and Sales Heat Map: You can create interactive maps using your own business data, and use the heat map function of interactive mapping software to generate a graphical representation of regional sales data base on sales volume, so to visualize easily how your sales are distributed among different geography regions, and decide how to spend your marketing budget in order to generate the maximum sales revenue. Energy Industry: Can use an interactive map on website to display the oil and gas fields in a specific region, with enlarged view of the oil and gas fields showing upon mouseover, and display further information for each oil or gas field in an information box.
Internal cross links between lower level keywords are less common in mind maps and concept maps than they are in association maps, with the branching tree structure tending to take precedence. With concept and mind maps, the relationship of each word to the overarching theme remains paramount. In association maps, however, the link becomes the key, and, as stated, the process of deciding which type of link joins keywords together is a valuable part of ascertaining correct understanding. If you cant link two keywords effectively, you havent understood how they are related to one another! This pairing and linking process allows a jigsaw like approach to the development of the knowledge map, and enables a student always to be working from a point of understanding. Most interestingly, when used to develop a map for a new topic where one is not an expert, it is possible to identify the high level terms which will take precendence at the top of a concept map once an association map has been developed. This is because they are the ones with the most linkages. Development of an association map therefore gives a useful mechanism for allowing students to take on the expert role and develop their own concept maps, even when they are not fully confident in a subject. Drawing any of the three types of maps involves much more active learning than just using ready produced ones in my experience so this is a definite bonus. In summary, all mapping techniques provide a powerful method for organising key ideas within a topic or sub-topic. Mind mapping allows colourful creativity, concept mapping provides the confidence of professional correctness, and association mapping always lets you get started somewhere, but I have a sneaky suspicion, that the real power of visual mapping is the process your brain goes through when you develop those non-verbal links for yourself, so get a pencil and get started!
Cartographers use a system called projection to depict the three-dimensional data of the surface of the Earth to a two-dimensional presentation. The Mercator Projection is the most popular projection for the map of the world. In the aeronautical realm, they use conical projections. With the galloping strides in the information technology, cartography has attained greater sophistication. Geographic Information System (GIS) has made it more scientific, accurate and adaptive to fluctuations in various fronts. Labeling is the system of specifying geographic features like cities, lakes, rivers, etc. in a map. For cartographers, labeling is difficult with the increase in density. Maps are created for the world, the continents, the countries, the provinces or states, smaller units like districts, cities, towns, etc.
