Local terrain deformation inspired by hand-­painted panoramas -­ Volume 48, Issue 1

The Editorial Board of The Cartographic Journal are delighted to confer the 2012 Henry Johns ‘Best Paper in The Cartographic Journal’ Award to Helen, Bernie, Bill and Lorenz for their excellent paper. This is getting to be a habit and represents a second consecutive ‘best paper’ award after last year.
Although the winning paper was clear, there were many worthy papers in the 2011 issues and six separate papers garnered votes from the Editorial Board. The paper extends the author’s work in creating digital panoramas. They won the 2011 best paper award in establishing an automated technique for bending terrain to create a panorama. This paper details a range of processes to apply local deformations to create realistic representations.

The work is innovative, engaging and is clearly at the interface of developing modern automated processes to capture some of the romanticism and art of panoramists. Another richly deserved award!

Unfortunatly the authors could not attend the Ceremony so the prize will be posted to them.
