Abstract

Redundancy in cartographic symbolization facilitates information transfer as measured by both errors (percentage correct responses) and time to respond (reaction time). This conclusion is drawn using empirical testing of four visual cues associated with place name lettering and the associated symbol: size of the dot symbol and size, boldness, and case of lettering. A difference between places portrayed by two stimulus dimensions is better than a variation in just one dimension, and, in some cases, three dimensions are better than two. A difference in four stimulus dimensions is superfluous.
