Drawing with geography
2015 (English)In: Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography, 2015, 327-341 p.Conference paper (Refereed)Text
A method is proposed to assist spatial planners in drawing with ‘geographic’ constraints. These constraints constrain graphic objects to have certain relationships that are not limited to be (Euclidean) geometric or topological but allowed to be dependent on the spatial variation of selected conditions (e.g., elevation and vegetation) characterizing an underlying geographic space. Just as in existing computer-aided design systems, the method accepts a manual change to a graphic object or constraint, and updates all affected graphic objects accordingly. The paper discusses how such a method is motivated and improves the graphic editing capability of geographic information systems, and identifies key issues for its implementation.
