Paper Abstract

Conceptual modeling is one of the most vital aspects of digital map generalization study, but at the same time it is probably the least understood. The relationship between spatial data generalization in GIS and map generalization is very close. However, distinctions exist at the same time. Based on analysis of massive references, the interrelationship of multi-scale, manual map generalization, digital map generalization, geographic database, cartographic database and conceptual modeling are discussed. This paper proposes and tests a simple conceptual modeling for spatial data generalization in GIS.
