Abstract:

The primary objective of this effort was to examine map compilation techniques used for manual and automated line generalization and feature displacement. Manual techniques used at several Defense Mapping Agency compilation sites are described in detail. An extensive survey of algorithms suggested in the cartographic, image processing, and computer science literature is provided. Possible criteria for evaluating algorithm performance are discussed and line generalization algorithms are ranked according to certain of these measures. Author
