A Roadmap for Creating Interactive Atlases for iBooks
Tuesday, Oct. 21

12 noon – 1pm

LPSC Seminar room 402

As the popularity of tablet computers and e-books increases, cartographers work to find new ways to combine the look and feel of a traditional paper book with the touch-screen features of a tablet computer.
We will discuss the potential and limitations for building and designing an interactive atlas in e-book format to take full advantage of tablet computers such as the iPad. We will explain the steps in building an interactive e-book atlas for iBooks including technical details and design considerations.
The Atlas of the Columbia River Basin and the international award-winning Atlas of Infectious Diseases, two e-book atlases published by undergraduate and graduate students at OSU, will be featured.
Following the presentation will be a panel discussion on the broader implications of using iBooks for research dissemination.
