Still others used subdivided squares in the manner of modern mosaic displays (Friendly, ) to show the breakdown of a total (passengers, freight) by several variables. It should be noted that in almost all cases the graphical representation of the data was accompanied by numerical annotations or tables, providing precise numerical values. he Albums are discussed extensively by Palsky (), who includes seven representative illustrations. It is hard to choose a single image here, but my favourites are surely the recursive, multimosaic of rail transportation for the – volumes, the ﬁrst of which is shown in Fig.
Abstract graphs, and graphs of functions became more widespread, along with the early stirrings of statistical theory (measurement error) and systematic collection of empirical data. ’ For example, the use of isolines to show contours of equal value on a coordinate grid (maps and charts) was developed by Edmund Halley (). , showing isogons – lines of equal magnetic declination – is among the ﬁrst examples of thematic cartography, overlaying data on a map. Contour maps and topographic maps were introduced somewhat later by Philippe Buache () and Marcellin du CarlaBoniface ().
It is hard to choose a single image here, but my favourites are surely the recursive, multimosaic of rail transportation for the – volumes, the ﬁrst of which is shown in Fig. . his cartogram uses one large mosaic (in the lower let) to show the numbers of passengers and tons of freight shipped from Paris from the four principal train stations. Of the total leaving Paris, the amounts going to each main city are shown by smaller mosaics, coloured according to railway lines; of those amounts, the distribution to smaller cities is similarly shown, connected by lines along the rail routes.
