A review of map types used in empirical research in cartography

Katarzyna Słomska

Keywords: empirical research, map stimuli, reporting studies

Abstract. The main aim of this paper is to present types of maps used as stimuli in empirical studies in cartography in the context of the user and researcher perspective. Such revisions could possibly bring opportunities similarly to the taxonomy of interaction primitives proposed by Roth (2013) or data base focused on studies’ participants by White (2017). Their work is a systematisation of previous knowledge, it constitutes a framework for future studies and makes them easier to compare and validate.
