Automated generalization of road networks has become an urgent task in the cartographic utilization of mobile services. The drawing area of the hand held phones or units is small and the resolution is limited. Therefore, the information presented on these visual display units must be highly dedicated to the need of information, i.e., adaptive generalization must be considered. The use of precompiled map sets may to some degree satisfy the need for adaptability, but the strategy considered lacks… CONTINUE READING
