Abstract

Rescaling grey-tone area symbols to compensate for visual under-estimation of data values does not address the problem of graphic stability. Line growth is a common graphic distortion of grey tones that can occur during the photographic, plate-etching and printing stages of map reproduction. A simulation model can be used to predict the effects of reproduction noise on various continuous-tone area symbols. Graphs derived from simulation modelling can assist the map author in specifying an efficient, reduced range of grey tones so that visually indeterminate patterns are avoided. -Author
