The impact of the cartographic method on students' map skills level
Havelková, Lenka ; Hanus, Martin (advisor) ; Bláha, Jan Daniel (referee)
The presented diploma thesis focuses on the map skills' problematic, which is currently becoming widespread in the Czech research environment. In contrast to the previous empirical studies, this thesis is devoted to the thematic map skills and their level of development among students of grammar schools and geographically oriented branches of university studies. Due to the significant differences between used cartographic methods of visualization on thematic maps the main aim of this diploma thesis is to identify and explain used cartographic method's influence on the level of these important skills. To achieve this aim, it was necessary to focus on different parts of the curriculum (intended, implemented, learned) and to use several scientific methods because this topic hasn't been well established yet and therefore only few theoretical and empirical studies dealt with this specific issue. Firstly, the review of literature focused on thematic cartography, map skills and on identifying their level of development among students was done. Due to the lack of specialized resources the model of thematic map skills was created. This specific model was further used during didactic test's designing and also for its results' interpretation. Similarly for the creation of appropriate didactic test -...

Culture Change in a Local Cultures of Papua New Guinea Author: Julie Grúzová Abstract The subject of this dissertation is the study of the local Nungon community living in Papua New Guinea. It focuses mainly on those sociocultural changes, which occurred as a result of the environmental protection in this area, and on their impacts on the cultural identity of the local inhabitants. Special attention is devoted to the study of visualization and representation of culture, nature, biodiversity protection, social and cultural changes and the future of the community. A partial objective is also to present ethnographic data and facts about the local Nungon community. A range of methods has been employed in the effort to fulfil the set objectives; the work is based on field research in the observed local community and on the techniques associated with it. The specific technique used to study cultural identity is a native drawing which was used to analyze cultural representations and visualizations of culture. Analyses of native drawings enable uncover a native understanding of the phenomenon of biodiversity conservation and related cultural changes. The thesis represents a unique visual material, which served as the basis for the analysis and interpretation of the sociocultural changes that are taking place in the...
Perception of space in Prague district Holešovice through mental maps of residents and other individuals
Hofierková, Soňa ; Bláha, Jan Daniel (advisor) ; Žáková, Zuzana (referee)
This work deals with the change of a space perception depending on the relationship between that space and respondents. The main goal is to determine how the orientation of respondents is changed in an unfamiliar area in comparison with the familiar area. Secondary goal examines how these responses are changed according to this space. The introduction is focused on goals, working hypotheses and basic concept definitions which are related to an issue of mental maps. GIS tools are used to evaluate mental maps. The main part is devoted to a case study of Holešovice district, processing and interpretation of gained results. The final section summarises results and confirms or disproves hypotheses. The results are aggregated maps representing four different groups of respondents followed by possibilities of a practical use of that work. Keywords: mental maps, perception of space, influence of the environment on residents
Large-scale rock portrayal using both hand drawing and digital cartography
Kiššová, Adéla ; Lysák, Jakub (advisor) ; Bláha, Jan Daniel (referee)
Large-scale rock portrayal using both hand drawing and digital cartography Abstract This paper describes creation of the larg-scale topographic map for Svatý Jan pod Skalou in the Czech karst. Detailed informations about rock formations had been obtained and the rocks were processed into hachures. Rock hachures had been made manually and then transformed to digital form. Operational objectiv is to get to know various styles of rock drawing (including žebříčková manýra, swiss style) in order to desribe practical aspects of drawing. These and other foundation materials (including airborne laser scanning data) are used for construction of detailed map of research location. Key words: rock drawing, topographic mapping, digital cartography
Cultural Aspects of Cartographic Creation: Use of Mental Maps in Cross-cultural Research
Bláha, Jan Daniel ; Soukup, Martin (referee)
Cultural Aspects of Cartographic Creation: Use of Mental Maps in Cross-cultural Research Abstract: Diploma thesis deals with study of interdisciplinary issue of cultural aspects of cartographic creation. The first part of the work consists of theoretical introduction dealing with the map content, map stylistics and map language, in which maps show the greatest cultural differences. The map figures here in a role of the image of reality and visual manifestation of culture. The analogy between a map and a classical language (linguistic anthropology) and the analogy between early maps and primitive cultures' maps are described. Beside the language, as determinants of the human spatial perception and other categories related to the map creation could be mentioned the environment, the experiences and the society, in which man lives. Several examples of so-called cultural map styles, especially from Australia and Oceania, are introduced as well. In the methodical part of the work in connection with cultural-anthropological research a method of cognitive maps, respectively mental maps of map users and map makers is discussed in detail. Just these maps are suitable to explore the cultural particularities of cartographic creation. The application part of the work presents the results of field research of mental maps...
Aesthetic Values of Cartographic Works: User-focused Aspects of Assessment of Cartographic Works
Bláha, Jan Daniel ; Stibral, Karel (advisor) ; Drápela, Milan Václav (referee) ; Kaňok, Jaromír (referee)
In the second decade of the 21st century, new technology plays an ever increasing role in our lives. The proposed study will contribute to the discussion about the effective use of modern information technology in cartographic creation, about its aesthetic and utilitarian value, about the possibility for a creative approach to production of cartographic works and about the relation between art and cartography. The study presents the author's activity over ten years in the area of human approaches to cartographic production, as well as numerous field studies among users of cartographic works, two research projects supported by the Charles University Grant Agency, and it is a continuation of his coursework and thesis. The study's theoretical point of departure (Chapter 2) draws from inspirational sources that are virtually unknown in the field of cartography. Above all, this includes the development of the concept of "art" and its significance for cartography, using the work of the philosopher of hermeneutics Hans-Georg Gadamer, the cartographer Eduard Imhof, and the Czech cartographer Karel Kuchař. Among other topics, the study addresses the division between practical and aesthetic functions of a cartographic work. A second ...

Bačo, Antonín ; Bláha, Jan Daniel (advisor) ; Bayer, Tomáš (referee)
General methodology for creation of geoinformatic system of faculty: Interactive plan of buildings of Faculty of Science at Charles University in Prague Abstract The main aim of this thesis is to establish the general methodology for creation of geoinformatic system of the faculty, using the example of an interactive plan of selected buildings of the Faculty of Science, Charles University in Prague. The result of the theoretical part of this project is the proposal of the framework methodology consisting of conception, construction, implementation and operation stages. These stages are then described in further detail and supplemented with important questions that should be solved by a designer in particular phase of the project. The theoretical part is followed by the practical part in which the discovered facts are verified during the creation of geoinformatic system of faculty realized using interactive plans. Gradually, a test version of the application was formed and then tested by questionnaire survey by students and employees of the faculty. Based on user's requirements final version of the interactive plan has been created so that it could be later put into common operation. The secondary aim of this work is the indication of the possibility of using 3D modeling in the creation of interactive plans...
