Abstract

The cartographic generalization of vector data in digital format involves six distinct processes, including simplification, smoothing, enhancement, displacement, merging, and omission. Although the research agenda has addressed each of the six elements individually, little consideration has been given to the geometric interaction of the components. This paper proposes a conceptual model, based on a sequential set of five procedures - or transformations - for the processing of linear digital data. The geometric interaction of simplification and smoothing algorithms is especially emphasized. -from Author
