During 2008 and 2009 was developed an international project on the possible use of Chernoff faces in School Cartography, with the participation of Argentine and Hungarian researchers, organizing a survey that finished with positive results, but also with some questions without a clear answer. This situation motivated Hungarian colleagues to organize a new project together with Austrian specialists in 2010 and 2011. The results of the Austrian survey were compared with the results obtained by Argentine and Hungarian pupils in 2009, finding answers to the previous contradictory results. A new Hungarian questionnaire was applied in grades 5 to7 of two Elementary Schools in Budapest, studying how younger
children read the data represented using Chernoff faces and pictograms modified according to the Chernoff principle. This
Hungarian survey determined the grade of acceptance between the younger pupils, as well as the grade of practical usability of these alternative methods in School Cartography.
