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.
One of the tricky questions that appear when you are looking to organize a trip is to know which kind of maps you should get in order to make it easy to move around through your destination. There are many options out there, but my general recommendation is that simplicity must win. Lets take a look at how we should select the best travel maps. First of all, to select the best travel maps you need to know which kind of trip you are planning to do. What I mean is not just the length of the trip or the number of stars your hotel has. What you really need to know if you are going to be staying in a single city, if you are going around a single country, or if you are visiting a whole continent, like it could be the case of a trip to Europe.
The local train map of Mumbai is used to get the information about the inner network of railways spread in Mumbai. The local train of Mumbai is just like the metro in Delhi which is a medium for a common man to travel from one place to another. The local map gives all such minute information about the widely spread network of Mumbai that may be used by one for convenience in travelling. In addition to the various kinds of maps mentioned, the excursion map is also of great use. It emphasizes on the main areas of the city giving us an overall review of the roads and places there. Hence we can conclude that the use of Mumbai maps is indispensable if you are planning to visit the city. They are made according to a given scale which may further help you to undertake your journey easily.
For example, when you use these maps on finding the cheap hotels, or specific restaurants on a certain area, these places will be plotted on the map to give you the idea where they are exactly. Then once you have chosen the best place you want to go to, you can ask the maps to give you driving directions. Live Traffic reports may also be available to set your expectations. Once your customized map is in place, print it, and you are off to go. And with Yahoo! Maps and Mapquest, you also have options to send the map to your phone or car. If you want to know the estimated time to travel by just walking, Google Maps give you such feature. It also give you directions using public transportation systems. So far, the public transit feature is mostly available in metropolitan areas. Aerial Map or the Satellite View images of the area is another common feature. Once you zoom in a place with the aerial view, youll get to see the contour of the mountains, which parts are mostly covered with plants, and know which areas are more populated. But aside from Satellite View, birds eye view is also available in Live Maps, as well as 3D map within Live Maps. Google Maps, on the other hand, is known now for its Street View maps. It offers it users street photos as if they are really driving or walking on the street. It wont be too long though that Live Maps may also offer such feature.
Mind mapping: a powerful brainstorming tool Whether youre a busy executive or a copywriter like me, mind mapping leads to a flow of thoughts. And by creating blank branches, youre forced to satisfy the brains desire for Gestalt, or wholeness, to find answers and make new associations. Where traditional note taking works in a constrained, linear way, mind mapping exploits the brains tendency to scan the whole field of information before it. Advantages of mind mapping for copywriters? So often, the simplest ideas and tools are the most powerful. For my work as a copywriter, Ive used mind mapping daily to plan articles, brochure content and website copy as well as for all manner of thinking and brainstorming purposes. Naturally, this article was planned using mind mapping.
