Vom analogen Atlas zum cloud-basierten Atlassing

Veröffentlichungen: Beitrag in FachzeitschriftArtikelPeer Reviewed


Using the example of atlases, this paper discusses the transition from analog to digital mapping. Section 1 and 2 will cover the main concepts, i.e. atlases and cloud computing. Based on a critical review on current literature, we will argue that the fundamental characteristic of digital atlases is not so much the use of digital maps, but rather the combination of these maps. With this assumption we shall demonstrate in chapter 3 how digital atlases facilitate the synthesis of different maps by means of both horizontal and vertical comparative structures. In section 4, an outlook on how the cloud can transform future atlases from products to processes (termed atlassing) will close this article.
