A Small Set of Formal Topological Relationships Suitable for End-User Interaction
Topological relationships between spatial objects represent important knowledge that users of geographic information systems expect to retrieve from a spatial database. Expand
Transportation mode-based segmentation and classification of movement trajectories
We present in this article a new method for segmenting movement data into single-mode segments and for classifying them according to the transportation mode used. Expand
The GAP-tree, an approach to "on-the-fly' map generalization of an area partitioning
The concept of "on-the-fly' map generalization is very different from the implementation approaches described in the paper by Muller et al.: batch and interactive generalization (Chapter 1). Expand
The core cadastral domain model
Abstract A standardized core cadastral domain model (CCDM), covering land registration and cadastre in a broad sense (multipurpose cadastre), will serve at least two important goals: (1) AvoidExpand
Massive point cloud data management: Design, implementation and execution of a point cloud benchmark
New techniques for point cloud management: Morton code and Morton-ranges, algorithms for parallel query, and vario-LoD organization. Expand
Variable-scale Topological Data Structures Suitable for Progressive Data Transfer: The GAP- face Tree and GAP-edge Forest
This paper presents the first data structure for a variable scale representation of an area partitioning without redundancy of geometry. At the highest level of detail, the areas are representedExpand
The land administration domain model
Societal drivers including poverty eradication, gender equality, indigenous recognition, adequate housing, sustainable agriculture, food security, climate change response, and good governance,Expand
Computers, Environment and Urban Systems
This paper analyses the difficulty in fulfilling the user requirements related to geo-information generalisation. Expand
The Balance Between Geometry and Topology
The architecture of Geographic Information Systems (GISs) is changing: more and more systems are based on the integrated architecture, i.e. storing geometric data in the Data Base Management System (DBMS) together with administrative data. Expand
Research and development in 3D cadastres
This paper sketches six remaining 3D cadastres research topics: (1) shared concepts and terminology (standardization), (2) full life cycle in 3D (not only the rights), (3) legal framework, (4) creation and submission of initial 3D spatial units, (5) 3D user interfaces, and (6) more formal semantics.
