Automatic Generalization of Topographic Maps - swisstopo Talks about Excellent Results
The most critical and time-consuming step in the map-making process is generalization – the step during which location-based data is simplified to make maps readable. Because generalization is extremely complex, it has long been considered a step that could not be automated.

Researchers and experts have been discussing automating generalization for many years. Axes Systems stopped talking and implemented a generalization solution that is unique in the world and saves valuable time and resources.

In a recent article in Geomatik Schweiz (May 2010), swisstopo, the Swiss Federal Office of Topography uses facts and figures to show how they have automated their generalization to achieve excellent quality results by using Axes Systems’ automated generalization. Read an excerpt of the article in English here.
