Ontology-Driven Map Generalization

Published: Jan 1, 2005 Author(s): Duckham, Matt, Egenhofer, Max J., Kulik, Lars Abstract: Different users of geospatial information have different requirements of that information. Matching information to users’ requirements demands an understanding of the ontological aspects of geospatial data. In this paper, we present an ontology-driven map generalization algorithm, called DMin, that can be tailored to particular users and […]

Spherical Topological Relations

Published: Jan 1, 2005 Author(s): Egenhofer, Max J. Abstract: Analysis of global geographic phenomena requires non-planar models. In the past, models for topological relations have focused either on a two-dimensional or a three-dimensional space. When applied to the surface of a sphere, however, neither of the two models suffices. For the two-dimensional planar case, the eight binary […]
