This visualization experiment is looking into how to visualize two-dimensional spatial data on a map. Normal visualization are limited to one dimension in addition to the spatial information. For this additional dimension one can use one of Bertins visual variables. Combining visual variables on maps can be tricky and often confusing as for example line-shading and colors are conflictual. The visualization presented here is inspired by Bertins “Vertical Sections & Chartmaps” (Bertin, 1983).
