THE GISMO MAP VISUALIZATION TOOL -- CONTRACT


Contents


GENERAL DESCRIPTION

This project's goal is to develop a data visualization tool for terrain maps: specifically, a GUI for manipulating and viewing maps of the North Shore Mountains near Vancouver. Already provided for the terrain viewer will be a general, thumbnail map of the area in interest (in this case, the North Shore Mountains). Also provided will be topographical data of the region's elevations, as expressed in three-space coordinates.

The job of the visualization tool is to provide a graphical user interface for the viewing, in topographical detail, of any arbitrary subregion of the general map whose dimensions the user will determine. The tool will use the topographical data to construct a terrain map of this subregion. The map will express elevations by using a system of gradated colors.

Ideally, this software will be extended for use in viewing maps not just of the Vancouver area but also of any area, whose general map and corresponding topographical data have been provided.
