  12. 12. Although the evolution never stops…… Something has survived……………………….
  13. 13. Elements of Cartography <ul><li>Projection </li></ul><ul><li>Scale </li></ul><ul><li>Grid </li></ul><ul><li>Coordinate System </li></ul><ul><li>Orientation </li></ul><ul><li>Legend </li></ul>How to set them up in ArcGIS?
  14. 14. Projection In order to transfer the 3 dimensional form of the earth into a 2 dimensional plane (to project), a projection is needed. Source:
  15. 15. Choosing the projection type Examples of azimuthal map projections In case of satellite impages Circular regions Application only true-to-scale in the projection center, neither orthomorphic nor equal-area orthomorphic, true-to-scale, where meridians and parallels cross true-to-scale, where meridians and parallels cross, neither orthomorphic nor equal-area Properties Vanishing point so far away that radiation dips in parallel Vanishing point opposite to the projection center Vanishing point at the geocenter Light source Orthographic Stereographic Genomic Type
  16. 16. Examples of conic map projections The parallels stand in pole proximity closer together than at the equator; is still often used in the USA today. For large-scale and middle-scale maps of the middle latitudes Application Equal-area Orthomorphic Properties Albers Equal-Area Conic Lambert Conformal Conic Type
  17. 17. Examples of cylindric map projections Source: Recommended for regions with N-S extent (G-K, UTM basic) For navigation and illustrations near to the equator Pplication Orthomorphic Orthomorphic, parallel distances increase proportionally from the equator to the scale Properties Mercator projection rotated 90^ Normal axial projection Figure Transverse Mercator Projection Mercator Type
  18. 18. Two-dimensional coordinate systems are defined with respect to a single plane Basic Coordinate Systems Coordinate System
  19. 19. A Line defined by Two Points in a Plane
  20. 20. Three-dimensional coordinate systems can be defined with respect to two orthogonal planes
  21. 24. The World Geographic Reference System is used for aircraft navigation

  25. 28. Different Systems <ul><li>Postal Codes </li></ul><ul><li>Utility Pole Coordinates </li></ul><ul><li>And… on.. </li></ul>So Here we need to concern more….. 1.Whether one coordinate system can be transformed to another? If Yes, How to do it? 2.Do you know how ArcGIS activate the function? 3. Where is the Taiwanese Grid System?
  26. 29. Projection Transformation <ul><li>1. 反解變換法 </li></ul>Hot hits: 1.
  27. 30. 2. 正解變換法 3. 綜合變換法 4. 數值變換法

  29. 32. Types of Scale You get so many choices…..It just depends on you! Or
  30. 34. Orientation WOW So Many Choices If you are using ArcMap, do you know how to set up those features?
  31. 35. Definition of GIS <ul><li>GIS is </li></ul><ul><li>1. a computer system designed to allow users to collect, manage and analyze large volumes of spatially referenced information and associated attribute data. < > </li></ul><ul><li>2. An organized collection of computer hardware, software, geographic data, and personnel designed to efficiently capture, store, update, manipulate, analyze, and display all forms of geographically referenced information. </li></ul>
  32. 36. <ul><li>3. 地理信息系統 又稱 GIS(Geographic information system) 系統,台灣則稱為地理資訊系統。 GIS 是一門綜合性學科 , 已經廣泛的應用在不同的領域 . ,是用於輸入、存儲、查詢、分析和顯示地理數據的電腦系統,可以分為以下五部分: </li></ul><ul><li>• 人員,是 GIS 中最重要的組成部分。開發人員必須定義 GIS 中被執行的各種任務,開發處理程序。 熟練的操作人員通常可以剋服 GIS 軟體功能的不足,但是相反的情況就不成立。最好的軟體也無法彌補操作人員對 GIS 的一無所知所帶來的負作用。 </li></ul><ul><li>• 數據,精確的可用的數據可以影響到查詢和分析的結果。 </li></ul><ul><li>• 硬體,硬體的性能影響到處理速度,使用是否方便及可能的輸出方式。 </li></ul><ul><li>• 軟體,不僅包含 GIS 軟體,還包括各種資料庫,繪圖、統計、影像處理及其它程序。 </li></ul><ul><li>• 過程, GIS 要求明確定義,一致的方法來生成正確的可驗證的結果。 </li></ul>Source:

Some additional files are generated by the creation of shapefiles. What are them and what function they offer? </li></ul>
  46. 50. Finally <ul><li>It’s time to begin it !!! </li></ul>Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues form the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now. Goethe
