GIS Databases: From Multiscale to MultiRepresentation [chapter]

Stefano Spaccapietra, Christine Parent, Christelle Vangenot
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The concept of multiscale database has become popular in the GIS domain as a way to enforce consistency between representations and reduce the global update load.  ...  This paper investigates the generic issues and solutions to achieve flexible support of multiple representation in a GIS database. C.  ...  The issues we addressed are of great relevance in the GIS world, and directly apply to multi-resolution geographical databases.  ...

Multi-Representation: A New Paradigm for Databases? [chapter]

Stefano Spaccapietra, Christelle Vangenot, Christine Parent
2003 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
In order to reconcile diverging requirements from users sharing the same database, research in databases has always looked for ways to support mUltiple representations of the same data.  ...  Views may then be defined to derive ad-hoc representations from the basic representations already defined in the database.  ...

A Seamless Constraint Model of Multi-Scale Representation of Geographical Information

Di Chen, Han Yue, Xinyan Zhu
2015 International Journal of Security and Its Applications  
At present, it has become a hot issue to provide a multi-representation mechanism and build multi-scale spatial databases in the field of GIS.  ...  Meanwhile, an inevitable problem is how to evaluate and preserve the consistency of multi-scale spatial data.  ...  Acknowledgements Authors wish to thank Natural Science Foundation of China (No. 41271401).  ...

MurMur: a research agenda on multiple representations

S. Spaccapietra, C. Vangenot, C. Parent, E. Zimanyi
Proceedings 1999 International Symposium on Database Applications in Non-Traditional Environments (DANTE'99) (Cat. No.PR00496)  
Basically, existing approaches to such versatility rely on the idea that all possible views of a piece of information can be derived from a single ultimate representation.  ...  A specific focus of the project is spatiotemporal information and the support of multi-scale geographic databases, where objects are represented at many different resolution levels.  ...  Mappings shall be bi-directional, as data extracted from the GIS will have to be adjusted to MurMur specifications.  ...

A semantic-rich multi-scale information model for topography

Jantien Stoter, Thomas Visser, Peter van Oosterom, Wilko Quak, Nico Bakker
2011 International Journal of Geographical Information Science  
The model is evaluated through a prototype database implementation.  ...  Keeping the data sets consistent, for example by means of automated update propagation, requires formal knowledge on how the different data sets relate to each other.  ...  Jones et al. (1996) propose a conceptual model for a multirepresentation database as a single database that is capable of storing spatial objects with multiple geometries.  ...

A Data Model for Multi-scale Topographical Data [chapter]

J.E. Stoter, J.M. Morales, R.L.G. Lemmens, B.M. Meijers, P.J.M van Oosterom, C.W. Quak, H.T. Uitermark, L. van den Brink
2008 Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography  
This paper presents a semantically-rich data model for an integrated topographical database, facilitating (semi-)automated generalisation. UML (including OCL) is used to formalise the model.  ...  The model is evaluated by instantiating the model and applying it to test data.  ...  Fig. 5 . 5 Example of using a MultiScale stereotype to model map scale dependent information.  ...

2014 Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography  
This chapter includes contributions from seven NMAs, illustrating how automated generalisation is used in practice within their partly or fully automated databases and maps production lines, what results  ...  The chapter finishes with a synthesis of recent achievements, as well as future challenges that NMAs have begun to tackle.  ...  They represented the NMAs contributing to Sects. 11.2-11.8 of this chapter, as well as: IGN-Belgium, GST-Denmark (former KMS), NLS-Finland, OSI-Ireland, IGN-Spain.  ...

Model Generalization and Methods for Effective Query Processing and Visualization in a WebService/Client Architecture [chapter]

Marian de de Vries, Peter van Oosterom
Spatial Data on the Web  
Special thanks to Martijn Meijers for supplying test data and discussing first results of his MSc thesis project.  ...  One approach is to use multiscale/multirepresentation databases that are created in an offline generalization process, and then switch to the appropriate representation for a certain zoom level when the  ...  This approach has a number of advantages over multiscale/multirepresentation databases: there is no geometry redundancy, data consistency is therefore easier to maintain under updates; the structure is  ...

Spatial ontologies for architectural heritage [article]

The constraints to data interpretation enable both database interoperability, for data and schemas sharing and reuse, and information retrieval in large datasets.  ...  It is composed by a number of aspects (spatial, topological, and mereological relations; accuracy; multiscale representation; time; etc.).  ...  Nevertheless, GIS enables all the procedures for data retrieval and computing in databases.  ...
