6 Digital Mapping using ArcGIS JSAPI


Day 6: Digital Mapping using ArcGIS JSAPI
Introduction to JSAPI and the Development of a Mapping App

Projection, Remap, Interpolation, Generalization, ArcGIS JSAPI, Gestalk Principles, Principles of Graphical Integrity, Bertin’s Visualization design space

Research Overview:
* Third Place Mobility Energy Consumption

1) Projection, remap, interpolation
2) Generalization
3) Understand modify Object-oriented programming(OOP) pattern

Workshop: Codepen, Github
1) develop a mapping app with JSAPI based on the boilerplate code

Additional note:
1) data visualization using d3
2) data visualization using Amcharts

Geographic coordinate system

Projection demo: link

Scaling, Clustering, Aggregation, Clustering and so on

Gestalk Principles: link
Grouping: Proximity — Similarity — Enclosure

Bertin’s Visualization design space: link
Mark / point / lines / area
Channels / position / value / texture / color / orientation / shape

Clustering Point
Grid-based clustering

ArcGIS StoryMaps

Clustering Points: Collision-Based Dynamic Graph method

ArcGIS StoryMaps

1: Build connectivities based on collision
2: Construct cluster graphs based on the connectivities
3: Recursive checking for the collisions while repositioning clusters by adding adjacent points
4: Tessellate big clusters based on a resolution
5: Post-process for merging based on a tolerance

  • Discussion, Reflection, and Final project
  1. A visualization project with one or two data sets in any location on the globe
  2. A form of the images or videos telling your story and visualization
  3. You can recode your voices or insert texts with animation or sets of images of your visualization project for the exhibition at the conference.
  4. (1)Images or (2)videos with the (3)JSON file you use for visualization, and your (4)information(name or website…)
