|Dot Mapping is a complex cartographic visualisation method to represent quantitative data and its spatial distribution. The design of a dot map is very elaborate. Dot maps show quantities by using a gathering of dots, which are equal in size and represented value. In this thesis a method to automatically create, in a cartographic sense, good dot maps is developed. Thereby this representation method is available to cartographic laymen. Expert cartographers are supported by speeding up the map design process.
