I am looking for ANY studies completed on mapping solutions for the web or interactive devices. Specifically related to:

  • Optimum View Window Size
  • Control Paradigms (Zoom/Markers)
  • Visual Design of Map Components (Color Contrast / Typography / Iconography)

What are some of the top studies or resources available?


There's quite a bit of research on cartography on the web, but most of it is not recent. The Commission on Maps and The Internet has published two books on the topic.

While I haven't used the material personally, it might be of some use to you.
