How to Cite GIS Materials When writing a research paper or an article that contains references to GIS data, maps, or other geospatial material, it’s important to include a proper citation crediting the author of the GIS work. Citations vary depending on if the map is a single piece of work, part of a map series, an atlas, or a map that is part of a book or a journal article. There are even specific citations if the map was created using GIS software or you are citing GIS data. There are varying citation guidelines for static web maps versus dynamic online mapping applications. For each map, first consult the original work in order to extract the necessary information. Scan the map for the necessary information. Unlike most books and journal articles, the map or GIS data being cited may not contain all the needed information for a full citation. Always check the map first for source information about the map’s author (1), title (2), scale (3), and publication location and publisher (4). Map Author . Author.

13_Xander's Web :: MapMaker v1.2 MapMaker v1.46 Qu'est-ce ? MapMaker vous permet de prendre et d'assembler automatiquement des copies écran, dans le but de fabriquer, par exemple, des images de grande dimension à partir, la encore par exemple, de sites internet comme OpenStreetMap. Outre la copie écran et l'assemblage automatique de ces copies, MapMaker propose un module spécifique qui en quelques réglages, vous permettra de fabriquer automatiquement une grande image. Enfin, MapMaker propose des outils de zoom, de recadrage, d'effacement de zones, permet d'enregistrer votre travail aux formats bmp, png ou jpeg, et permet d'imprimer le résultat à l'échelle de votre choix. Principe de fonctionnement de l'assemblage : Pour construire l'image au fur et à mesure des copies écran, MapMaker utilise des zones de comparaison de 100x100 pixels. De plus, MapMaker compare les zones les plus caractéristiques des images, celles qui ont les plus grands contrastes afin de gagner du temps. Pour les utilisateurs de Linux :

Dragonlance Nexus: Recommended Dragonlance Reading List - Product Catalog by Matt If you are new to the Dragonlance series, the sheer number of novels that have been published is overwhelming. One of the questions we get at the Nexus most often asks what order should someone read the Dragonlance novels. For those that don't want to wait for the explanation, here's my short list (these should be read in the order they appear in the comprehensive list): Classic core novels Fifth Age core novels Age of Mortals core novels Historical core novels List Setup The comprehensive list is divided two ways. Second, the list is organized based on the relative importance of a series. The Time Periods Now that I've clarified the list's organization, I will talk a little bit more about the various time periods. The Historical designation is for novels that flesh out the backstory of Dragonlance. The Fifth Age continued until 421 AC, when the events recounted in the War of Souls trilogy drastically changed the course of history once again. Reading Order

An amendment to the Golden Rule Mapnik Available languages — Mapnik is an open source toolkit for rendering maps. Among other things, it is used to render the five main Slippy Map layers on the OpenStreetMap website. It supports a variety of geospatial data formats and provides flexible styling options for designing many different kinds of maps. Mapnik is written in C++ and can be scripted using binding languages such as JavaScript (Node.js), Python, Ruby, and Java. the Mapnik Installation Wiki. You can learn more about using Mapnik at The Mapnik Wiki and by joining the #mapnik channel on freenode Note that Mapnik is a software project and should not be confused with any of the common map stylesheets that might be named after Mapnik.
