Paper Abstract

Spatial similarity relations are put forward with the introduction of automated map generalization in the construction of multi-scale map databases; then the definition of spatial similarity relations is presented and the concept of spatial similarity degree is given. Finally a classification system for spatial similarity relations in multi-scale map spaces is discussed in detail. This research may be useful to automated map generalization, spatial similarity retrieval and spatial reasoning.
