Applications of Distortion-Oriented Presentation Techniques in GIS

  title={Applications of Distortion-Oriented Presentation Techniques in GIS},
  author={Neville Churcher},
The internal components of a typical Geographic Information System (GIS) have evolved dramatically in recent years. However, the man-machine interface has remained relatively unchanged and is now a limiting factor in performance and usability. Distortion-oriented presentation techniques employ transformations which emphasize regions and features of interest while suppressing, yet retaining, global detail.
