An essential handbook that provides a step-by-step guide to the use of colour for GIS users and cartographers. All GIS users face the task of visualising the results of complex analysis, but the wealth of options available can be overwhelming. Even if a user manages to pick suitable colours on screen, the printed result often proves inaccurate and unusable. Brown and Feringa have put together a concise guide to the use of colour for all GIS users, cartographers and those involved in remote sensing. The handbook explains the importance of colour, how it can be input, then manipulated, and most importantly, displayed. The authors also include an essentail colour chart produced by the ITC - this colour chart is the definitive version used by GIS users worldwide.Yellow 1 1 0 White 1 1 1 Table 4.1 3 -bit colour In a 3-bit system (one bit for each of R, G and B). the scanner or camera would record a 0 for light reflection below a pre-set ...
