dc.description.abstract The objective of my research is to revive and practice the art of traditional pictorial maps in 3D cartographic visualization . I have chosen to create both graphical and statistical pictorial maps which can be used for the purpose of tourism and data representation respectively . Some traditional hand -drawn and sculptural pictorial maps of famous artists have been picked out to start as a base for my work . The goal was to recreate or imitate the style , character and features of these traditional hand -drawn and sculptural maps with 3D computer graphics and to analyze how effectively 3D tools can be used to communicate map information . I also wanted to explore ways to make these maps interactive on the Web and have them accessible to a large number of viewers . The results show a number of interactive 3D pictorial maps of different countries and continents . These maps are initially built with Maya , a 3D modeling software , and converted into web pages using the Viewpoint Technology . For statistical maps , Mel scripts have been used in Maya to take input from the user and change the shape of models accordingly to represent data . These maps are interactive and navigable and are designed to be easily accessible on the Web . en_US
