Best Map of 2016 Journal of Maps

The award for the 2016 “Best Map” goes to (Bernhard Jenny, Johannes Liem, Bojan Šavrič & William M. Putman) The article is titled: Interactive video maps: A year in the life of Earth's CO2

The main component of video maps is a video stream that is areally georeferenced to a spatial reference system in the same way rectified raster orthoimages are georeferenced. The areal georeference allows for interactivity that goes beyond the play, pause, and stop functionality of video player software. We highlight two types of functionality, allowing the user to (1) combine the video stream layer with other raster and vector map layers and (2) adjust the projection of the map in real time.
