Methodologies for the evaluation of generalised data derived with commercial available generalisation systems


Burghardt, D; Schmid, S; Duchêne, C; Stoter, J; Baella, B; Regnauld, N; Touya, G (2008). Methodologies for the evaluation of generalised data derived with commercial available generalisation systems. In: 11th ICA Workshop on Generalisation and Multiple Representation, Montpellier, France, 20 June 2008 - 21 June 2008, 1-16.

Abstract

The paper investigates methodical questions on the analyses and evaluation of automated generalised maps. The maps are produced with commercially available out-of-the-box generalisation systems, in a way that every system was tested by several persons on four test cases. The requirements on the generalised maps were described by cartographic constraints in a formal way. In addition, manually generalised maps were provided to give further reference information for the tester.
The analyses of the generalised maps are to be based on empirical and automated evaluation methods. The paper will present these evaluation methods in detail with objectives, related research, how the methods are realised and expected
outcomes. Possible interchanges and synergies between the evaluation methods will also be described. The work published within this paper contributes to research on formal descriptions of cartographic requirements on generalised maps. It supports the development of methods for the situation and context dependent application of generalisation functionality and serves on the evaluation
of existing generalisation products, to derive future research and development potential
