While spatial info is digitized to be used in geographic info structures and different software program, information regarding its unique scale, solution and accuracy is usually misplaced. for that reason, utilizing such details at assorted scales and mixing it with facts from different resources could be tricky. Mapping vector information at smaller than the unique scale calls for its generalization, that is frequently dealt with via post-processing in ways in which are just weakly supported via databases. The types and techniques defined during this publication conquer many such difficulties via offering a multi-resolution information illustration that permits retrieval of map information at a hierarchy of scales, in addition to documenting the accuracy of each spatial coordinate.

1. 1, Q T M Level (col 1) is the (recursive) depth of subdivision; ID Bits (col. 2) gives the size of facet Identifiers in bits. The third column refers to the number of subdivisions in an o c t a n t (1/8 of the earth); the L i n e a r Divisions column likewise specifies how many times an octant's edges are subdivided at each level. Dividing that number into one quarter of the earth's circumference (10,000 km) yields the average length of a facet edge, labelled Linear Extent. 1 shows) they are presented as round numbers and scaled to be easier to comprehend.
4. E. Nordenskirld's (1889) atlas of early cartography. 3 Prior, Related and Derived Work 29 A good representation of the geographical ideas prevailing in the period immediately preceding Magellan's circumnavigation of the earth, is found in a collection of Leonardo Da Vinci ... From this circumstance a certain interest is attached to this insignificant sketch, which is in no wise distinguished by such accuracy and mastery in drawing, as might be expected from a map attributed to the great artist among whose papers it was found.
4 Challenges of Digital Map Generalization Generalization of digital map data has received an increasing amount of attention in the past several years, not only from the GIS community but from computer scientists as well. This is a multi-faceted problem which will require a multiplicity of approaches, and will keep researchers busy for a number of years to come. Most of the research and solutions in this area are concerned with a single subproblem, that of line simplification, for which a large number of algorithms have been developed.
