During the cartographic generalisation process, geographic objects cannot just be considered one by one. The way objects are processed clearly depends on their spatial context. In this paper, we first study the nature of spatial context encountered during map generalisation. We differentiate three kinds of relations that an object can have with its environment: being part of a significant group, being in a particular area, being in relation with 'same-level' surrounding objects. We also address… CONTINUE READING
