Paper Abstract

The growth of web and wireless of geographical information systems presents a new set of challenges for map personalization services, because web and wireless mobile users of geographical information systems require information that is directly relevant to the specific task in which they are engaged. In this paper, we propose to set up user ontology for map personalization. Based on the user ontology, we put forward and adopt the cartographic generalization for web map personalization visualization driven by user ontology, which remain or reduce online web map description data according to user's interests and increase user's understanding of the web map. Based on this, we set up automatic web cartographic prototype systems to generate web mapping on demand.
