Abstract: This paper introduces the concept of a mapogram. A mapogram may be viewed as a special form of spatiogram,which is a histogram containing additional spatial information. Additionally, this paper presents theory relevant to the creation of a proposed mapogram. A similarity measure derived from the Bhattacharyya coefficient is obtained in order to make comparisons between mapograms. Examples using a mapogram are given.
