Atlas GUI, segmented in functional-logical units (Prototype “Atlas of Switzerland”, Version 3); 1. General functions, 2. Navigation functions, 3. Didactic functions, 4. Cartographic and visualisation functions, 5. GIS functions In most cases, the function groups and subgroups do not include purely self-contained functions. Therefore, an alternative approach is important as well: the interplay of functions (Sieber and Huber 2007). Functions may technically belong together, although they are not assigned to the same function group with respect to their functionality.
