Map Generalization

£34.99

Product description

This book focuses on the development of a set of rules for the standardization of digital maps used in GIS. The book addresses the problems of map generalization and draws upon research of the National Center for Geographic Information, State University New York, who set up an initiative to formulate rules to improve efficiency, preserve consistency and incorporate sound principles into digital mapping. Divided into four sections the book looks at rule base organization, data modelling issues, formation of rules and computational and representational issues. The book identifies and prioritizes the problems involved in the development of a rule base and provides a framework to help solve these problems. Professionals from many related fields have contributed to the chapters to provide a broad synthesis of ideas.

Condition: the dust-jacket shows some mild marking and denting, as well as some staining on the inside. The boards show some mild corner-bumping. There is some moderate staining on the fore-edge. Except for some occasional light staining, the interior pages are crisp and clean with a good strong case binding.
