Interpolated line generalization: overview, examples, and preliminary evaluation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Interpolated generalization, which can address feature displacement, simplification, and smoothing, employs a small-scale representation B to guide the generalization of large-scale representation A to produce an intermediate-scale representation C with an appropriate level of detail and without overlapping symbols. In relying upon the skill and insight of the expert cartographer who developed the small-scale representation, interpolated generalization offers a parsimonious expert-systems strategy that can yield a more graphically straightforward, more geographically meaningful display than "more traditional' artificial intelligence approaches based on predicate calculus and IF-THEN rule bases. -from Author
