Some possible applications using interactive maps on websites including: Retail Shops / Branches Locator: A web-based interactive flash map can help your customers to find the nearest retail shop or branch location in few mouse clicks. For example, you can use an interactive map of United States on your website, with pushpin buttons to pinpoint all your retail shops, hotels or any other type of facilities. Your visitors can make selection simply by clicking on a pushpin button, and then he can see the list of options available including address and contact details. Interactive Real Estate Map: A real estate website can use interactive flash maps to display available properties on state, county or city maps. Push pins of different colors and shapes can be used to pinpoint residential properties, commercial properties, resorts, apartments, corporate offices, and more. Hover over effects can be included which can provide additional pop-up information about a particular property.
A Scene of Relativity World wall maps can provide an interesting perspective on the world we live in. Not all world maps are in the standard format we are used to with the Northern Hemisphere in the top the map, with the Americas on the left (West) and China and the Indonesia on the right (East). There are some interesting world maps which are formatted in a different way. The Pacific Centred wall map Europe and the Americas on separate sides of the map. There are also upside down style maps of the world where the southern Hemisphere is now in the north of the map, and countries like Australia, Brazil and South Africa are now in the northerly part of the map. By looking on a world map at the area you live in, you can clearly see what countries and geographical features are around you which give a scene of relativity. Social Talking Point People find maps comforting as it gives them some grounding and something familiar to look at. World maps instantly draw people in to look at them. They notice where they live, where they have travelled and where they are currently. Even if they have seen a world map countless times before, there is sure to be something people see every time they look at a map. People comment on the different styles or designs of maps, colours used or the size and finish of a map.
But it is not these historical buildings that attract tourists to Kerala. It is the beauty of its nature, which is blessed both with mountain ranges and forests on the east and the Arabian sea and backwaters on the West. A travel map? Why? There are so many places in Kerala to be seen, so unless you are planning to stay here for a long time you need to plan your holidays properly. There is every chance that you miss one beautiful tourist attraction while having a hasty trip from one place to another. Just by taking five minutes to look at your Kerala Map, you can avoid all this and have a beautiful experience of lifetime. Why has a hasty trip when you can avoid it? This is a common problem faced by many tourists. They visit Kerala for a short holiday and most time travel from one end to another missing the soothing experience of Kerala, the reason why they chose to come here. Kerala is a place to relax your mind. It is not a place where you can find the rush of a metro, large shopping malls and theme parks, but a place where you live in harmony with nature. There are places where you need to stay longer and places where you can just skim through. For example you can enjoy the backwaters only if you stay there for a day on a houseboat. But in Trivandrum which houses most of the palaces of old Kings of Kerala, it may take only one day to visit them all. So when you plan your holiday it is better to plan it with the help of a travel map.
After verifying you have the latest version, launch Google Maps on your respective device and search for the area youd like to save for offline access. Google Maps will then show the area you find, with the name being displayed along the bottom of the screen. You will need to download the area of interest before being able to take advantage of Google Maps offline. This is what we mean when we say things must be done "proactively." The map area must be downloaded before leaving the safety of your citys secure connection. Youll then be tasked to adjust the area to be saved via panning and zooming around, making sure to pay attention to the size limit alert along the top of the screen. Of course, there is a massive amount of information when downloading nearly two cities and everything in between them. Be ready to sacrifice plenty of storage space for your maps. These can take up to 1GB, depending on the area. Additionally, you will get a glimpse of the local weather conditions, pictures, hotels, shops, restaurants and navigation options. You will even get a travel estimate to that spot based on your current location.
The key is knowledge, so you will need to learn as much as you can about the individual maps you are hunting for. I suggest you choose a subject of cartography or a historical period you may interested in learning about. Consider maps made during the American civil war, maps of the Republic of Texas, maps of Scotland if you are of Scottish ancestry or maps of Rome if you went there on honeymoon. For example, your adoptive child is from China then you can concentrate on maps of China. The options are limitless. The idea is that within each field there will be a few fairly rare and desirable maps that can fetch some good money when sold at auction. When you have become acquainted with the current sale price of your selection of maps you will need to consider condition and editions. By this I mean a specific edition, of a specific year for a map in good condition with no tears, water stains, major repairs and has good color. By the time you have done the things described above you will have a fair amount of knowledge about the world of antique maps. You will now be starting your hunt. In your hunt you should go to all the consignment shops and thrift stores in your area. Visit antique stores and old book stores and ask to see if they have old maps. By doing this you will get to handle antique maps and get a feel for them.
Map projections are classified based on: Distortion characteristics: Some projections often need to show a particular area or its relative size accurately for distributions or other phenomena. These are called equivalent or an equal area projection. The Lambert Azimuthal projection that maps a sphere to a disk, and accurately shows all regions of the sphere is an example of this category. However, this equal area projection fails to represent angles with accuracy. The Albers projection is another instance of equal area map projection that utilizes two standard parallels. Despite no preservation of scale and shape, the distortion in this case is found to be minimal between the standard parallels.
