Creating database schemas that include complex geometries and that take into account map generalization as well as multiple geometric representations is quite a challenge. The created schemas are either too complex to become useful, too large to be usable, too detailed to be checked with the overall integrity in mind, or even too labor-intensive to even be(More)
Cartographic generalization has been a research topic for more than thirty years. In spite of recent advances, a complete automation of this process still faces fundamental problems. Furthermore, recent needs such as web mapping and Spatial On-Line Analytical Processing (SOLAP) require geospatial data that are generated on-the-fly at any scale. This(More)
Recent years have witnessed the emerging of web mapping applications. These applications allow a user to have access to spatial data, to support a descriptive query or map visualization and production. However, existing applications are rather limited regarding the flexibility offered to the user. This paper proposes to revisit and enrich the Map-on-Demand(More)
With the growing popularity of mobile computing and the empowerment of mobile devices by high end-users and decision-makers, the development of architectures based on web services for the deployment of mobile Spatial OLAP (SOLAP) applications is being perceived as a powerful solution. This paper deals with geospatial (web) Services-Oriented Architectures(More)
BACKGROUND Climate change has a significant impact on population health. Population vulnerabilities depend on several determinants of different types, including biological, psychological, environmental, social and economic ones. Surveillance of climate-related health vulnerabilities must take into account these different factors, their interdependence, as(More)
Map generalization is a complex task which requires sometimes human intervention. In order to support such a process on-the-fly, we propose a generalization approach based on Self-Generalizing Objects (SGOs) which encapsulate geometric patterns (forms common to several cartographic features), generalization algorithms, and spatial integrity constraints.(More)
