Paper Abstract

A vector map is a terrain representation with a vector-structured geometry. Molenaar formulated an object-oriented formal data structure for 3D single valued vector maps. This FDS is implemented in a database (Oracle). In this study we describe a methodology for visualizing a FDS-based database and manipulating the image. A data set retrieved by querying the database is converted into an import file for a drawing application. An objective of this study is that an end-user can alter and add terrain objects in the image. The drawing application creates an export file, that is compared with the import file. Differences between these files result in updating the database which involves checks on consistency. In this study Autocad is used for visualizing and manipulating the image of the data set. A computer program has been written for the data exchange and conversion between Oracle and Autocad. The data structure of the FDS is compared to the data structure of Autocad and the data of the FDS is converted into the structure of Autocad equal to the FDS.
