Generalization of Multiple Scale Maps from a Single Master Database
Track: Cartography and Map Production
Author(s): Miguel Garriga, Geoffrey Baldwin
This paper describes some of the work being done on map generalization at the American Automobile Association (AAA). AAA produces various map products at different scales for our members including detailed city maps, vicinity maps, regional maps, and atlases. Our goal is to maintain all of the required geographic data in a single master database and to generate all of our map products from this one database. A closely related goal is make updates only once, directly to the master database, and to have those changes automatically appear in all derived maps the next time they are produced.
