A.8 Mapper in Use

The following is a screenshot showing in use from May 26, 2004. The image shows the page output from Mapper in the Firefox web browser. The screenshot was taken and cropped with the GIMP. The map (green and red lines) was generated by MapMaker, a helper application for this thesis. The algorithm for determining the shape of the places is courtesy David Norman
