Projet MapMuxing

Multi-dimensional Map Multiplexing

Mapping applications such as Google Maps or the French Géoportail provide a wide range of users with on-demand mapping. But combining data sources, merging different representations, and in some cases navigating maps remains tedious and cognitively demanding. For instance, users are unable to easily get details about a point of interest while preserving a general view of their itinerary. Advanced scenarios involving subject-matter experts who must perform more complex tasks in possibly critical situations, reveal even more issues. In the case of, e.g., a natural disaster crisis management such as a tsunami, exposed areas have to be identified quickly, and emergency access to secured areas communicated to evacuation teams on the ground. MapMuxing is an interdisciplinary project involving researchers in human-computer interaction and geographic information sciences, that will explore novel ways of combining different types of maps and navigating from one representation to another.
