COST OF CARTOGRAPHY

Besides the cost of calculating a study, there is an additional cost associated with the mapping used.

The price of the mapping is calculated by adding the individual costs of each layer of mapping. This cost is calculated based on:

- Calculation cost. This cost depends entirely on the type of study and the calculation resolution. The following link provides details about the acquisition of this cost.

- Layer use. Percentage on the profile/área of the calculation which is within the layer. For example, a profile that runs half of it on a mapping layer, and half out of it, represents a 50% of use percentage. That is, the final cost of the mapping layer will be half that if the profile is completely within the layer.

- Cost of the layer. Percentage on the cost of the study. For example, if the cost of a layer is 20%, in a study of 20 euros the final cost of the layer is 4 euros.

Individual costs of cartography = Calculation cost x Use percentage x Increase on the cost

The following image is an example of getting the cost of mapping. The calculation is made with two layers of mapping: a 100m resolution worldwide, and other 2m resolution of the city of Madrid. The latter is shaded blue to be differentiated.

The coverage study makes calculations using 100% of worldwide cartography and 25% of the cartography of Madrid within the calculation area defined by the user. The cost increment of the worldwide layer is 0% (free) while the layer of the city of Madrid is 20%.

Assuming that the cost of calculation is 200 euros, the cost of mapping would be:

Price Mapping = 200 x 100% x 0% + 200 x 25% x 20% = 10 euros

If instead of having used the mapping of the world (for free), a rural mapping with higher resolution was used, with a cost increase of 10%, the cost would have been:

Price Mapping = 200 x 100% x 10% + 200 x 25% x 20% = 30 euros
