    Japanese Intelligence Officers’ Surveying Aggression on Chosun Dynast and the Characteristics of Visual Measurement Maps

    Nam Young-Woo | 이호상 | 2010, 10(1) | pp.1~12 | number of Cited : 6
    This study analyzed visual measurement maps that Japanese intelligence officers had investigated secretly in violation of the international law in the last years of Chosun Dynasty. The mapping method of these maps does not have a conventional form of a diagram because it bases on the surreptitious and apid visual approximation using the eye measurement. The result of analysis hows not only the unsystematic indication of contour lines and scales but also the employment of both contour lines and hachures for the description of topographical altitude. When occasion demands, the simplified contour lines are used because a precise mapping requires time-consuming work and the legends of maps are also mostly omitted.

    Representation of Hokkaido and its Surroundings in Old Western Maps of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries

    JUNG,IN-CHUL | 2010, 10(1) | pp.13~25 | number of Cited : 3
    The survey and mapping of Hokkaido and its surroundings played an important role in the European Recognition of Korea Peninsula and East sea. The purpose of this study is to consider cartographic representation of this area in old western maps of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. By the sixteenth century, European knowledge of this area was very limited. So Western cartographers positioned Japan as a large island in the middle of the Pacific, and they did not represented this area. B0ut the mapping of this area received a turning point by the Sicilian Jesuit Girolamo de Angelis as early as 1621. Sir Robert Dudley quoted Anglelis’ report and described this area in relation with Korean Peninsula. In the middle of the seventeenth century, Maerten Vries’ discovery confused geography of this area, when he received one of the Kurils to be continental. His quest influenced mapmakers for more than a century. We classified representation types of this area in six categories. Apart from Vris’ quest, we considered also the cause of mapping error of this area with the map of Japan brought to Europe by Engelbert Kaempfe.

    “The Historical Meaning of the Name of ‘Sea of Japan(日本海)’ in 「The New Detailed Map of Japan, Russia, China, and Korea(日露淸韓明細新圖)」”

    Hodong Kim | 2010, 10(1) | pp.27~37 | number of Cited : 6
    “The government of the Republic of Korea asserts that the dual use of the names of ‘East Sea’ and ‘Sea of Japan’ is consistent with the recommendation and resolution of the United Nations Conference on the Standardization of Geographical Names and International Hydrographic Organization. However, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan asserts not only that the IHO resolution applies to geographical features under two national sovereignties such as gulf or strait, etc., but also that there is no international case that the resolution applies to international waters such as Japan Sea.” This paper proved the title of ‘Japan Sea’ was not used as meaning of international water but ‘Sea(territory) of Japan’, which was resulted in Japanese expansionism for the territory water expansion by the published map of 「The New Detailed Map of Japan, Russia, China, and Korea(日露淸韓明細新圖)」in 1903 under the supervision of Department of Survey of Japan Navy. As a result, it obviously defined parallel use of East Sea/Japan Sea title for East Sea.

    A Study on Dokdo Recognition of Japan - Focused on the Dokdo Attribution and Border Drawn in the 「New Map of Japan, Russia, China, and Korea(日露淸韓明細新圖)」-

    KIM WHAKYONG | 2010, 10(1) | pp.39~53 | number of Cited : 2
    This paper aim to define the recognition of Japan on Dokdo which was drawn in the <New Map of Japan, Russia, China, and Korea>published in 1903. First, the authority of edition of the Map was assumed to be the Japanese government because the Department of Survey in Japanese Empire Army and Navy was the result of temporary congregation of the two institution of Department of Survey of Japanese Army and Department of Survey of Japanese Maritime Force. And the purpose of the publication of the Map was a strategic need for the preparation of Russo-Japanese War. Also, the Map confirmed and drew the border line between two countries at the same distance from east of Korean Dokdo which was called Matzushima at that time and west of Japanese Oki in the East Sea, which constructed a International Water Zone between the border line. The above fact prove that Japanese recognized Dokdo as Korean territory before Russo-Japanese War.

    Spatial Distribution and Utilization Feature of WiFi

    Hong Il Young | 2010, 10(1) | pp.55~64 | number of Cited : 12
    At present, WiFi Access Points are widely used and spread to the general public as the wireless Internet become popular. WiFi based wireless communication, which is following IEEE 802.11 standard, is applied not only to indoor environment but also the outdoor urban places for wireless Internet. In addtion to this, the application area of WiFi is utilized as the micro-scale location-based services. This study analyzied the spatial distribution and the utilization features of WiFi Accesss Points. The case study is applied to the commercial and residential places and the density, secutiy, and spatial features are analyzied and compared. Based on these analysis, the spatail characteris of WiFi are overviewed in the perspective of future ubiquitous services.

    Methods and Strategies for Korean Land Monitoring

    정재준 | Soo-hyun Lee | 2010, 10(1) | pp.65~74 | number of Cited : 22
    Land monitoring has great importance for the systematic and comprehensive land management. It presents the condition of land using various statistics and spatial information and aims to provide information for policy making. So, continuous change monitoring is an important issue to manage national territory. In this study, an effective system of land monitoring methodology has been suggested and Orientors, indices and datum were established for land monitoring. First of all, synthetic approach concerning monitoring considered in Korea and the monitoring methodology as this approach was suggested. Also, general monitoring indices as monitoring target were established. and database that should be used in calculating indices were examined. Finally, monitoring case study utilized orientor concept was conducted as the fore presented methodology application. From this case study process, the problems of data processing and result expression were raised, and alternatives were proposed.
