Abstract

"Weighted isolines' is a method of isoline symbolization in which isolines vary in width in proportion to the data values they represent. Result of a map interpretation experiment demostrate that the weighted isolines method is an effective alternative to conventional labeled isolines of uniform width and "shadowed' isolines (which thicken uniformly along southeastward slopes) for promoting rapid and accurate interpretation of statistical surfaces. -Authors
