Chorem Maps: towards a Legendless Cartography?


There is a paradox between usual cartography for which legends are mandatory, and visual languages for which some textual explanations will represent a failure. In this paper, we address this paradox by presenting various points of view. Then, we will argue that chorems as schematized representations of territories issued from both cartography and visual languages can bring a solution in this paradox. To conclude, we claim that no legends are necessary when chorem maps are well designed.
