title Area cartograms in building product model visualization: A case study on the presentation of non-spatial object properties in spatial context with anamorphic maps

summary Existing presentation of building information models is mostly based on a 1:1 mapping of spatial information to spatial visualisation parameters. This approach limits the presentability of non-spatial properties and can even produce misleading presentations. An area cartogram is a type of map where the size of the areas is tied to some non-spatial value instead of the real size of the object. We identified five types of cartograms, applied them to typical building geometry and evaluated the resulting presentations in terms of readability. Finally a use case scenario is given to prove the need of such formal studies and to provide the basis for further evaluation.
