In GIS datasets, it is rare that building objects are richly attributed. Yet having semantic information (such as tenement, terraced, semi-detached) has real practical application (in visualisation and in analysis). It is often the case that we can infer semantic information simply by visual inspection – based on metric and topological properties for example. This paper explores the application of pattern recognition techniques as a way of automatically extracting information from vector… CONTINUE READING
