Data analysis

Depending on the author and viewpoint, the contents of thematic cartography may be looked at from different angles. At this point, the number of attributes to be depicted is of relevance. It is to be distinguished between one or multiple attributes. One example for a attribute may be the population number per municipality. If this number is additionally subdivided by mother tongue of its inhabitants, multiple attributes are gained. For the visualisation of one attribute the continuous depiction of quantities or the depiction of intervals can be used. If multiple attributes should be visualised within a map, diagrams are used. In the following chapters, first the methods for the depiction of one attribute are described. Afterwards, methods for the depiction of multiple attributes are described.
