  title={National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis Multiple Topological Representations},
  author={Pascal Bruegger and Werner Kuhn},
Humans use multiple mental models of the world to reason efficiently at different levels of abstraction. Current geographic information systems (GIS) normally use only a single model or representation of the world. If only a single level of abstraction is supported, the utility of the system is limited. Future GIS should support multiple representations at different levels of abstraction, so that adequate levels of abstraction can be found for a large range of scales.
