ABSTRACT The 1859 field diaries of Ferdinand von Hochstetter (1829–1884) include raw data from a compass survey of Lake Rotomahana. The azimuth array is reverse engineered to identify Hochstetter’s survey baseline. Survey iterations are performed to reconstruct the historic Lake Rotomahana over today’s topographic map. Hochstetter’s papers include a method-of-squares survey map of Lake Rotomahana, providing scale and orientation to the reverse engineered projection. The forensic cartography…

This paper analyzes the semantic contents of map symbols designed by university students from different countries to study how the concepts to be depicted and the differences in the cultural backgrounds of designers affect the design of the symbols.

A survey of image registration techniques

This paper organizes this material by establishing the relationship between the variations in the images and the type of registration techniques which can most appropriately be applied, and establishing a framework for understanding the merits and relationships between the wide variety of existing techniques.
