Automation and the Map Label Placement Problem: A Comparison of Two GIS Implementations of Label Placement

Jill Phelps Kern, Cynthia A. Brewer
2008 Cartographic Perspectives  
Imhof (1962 Imhof ( , 1975) ) compiled an initial set of map label placement rules that have influenced the development of label placement automation from its earliest days.  ...  Label Placement Rules Freeman and Ahn (1987) revisited Imhof's rules for placing labels on maps with an eye to automating map annotation from a rule-based, expert system perspective.  ...  Following articulation of rules for label placement, rules-based algorithms were introduced, and they began to evolve toward expert systems.  ...

A formal approach to the automated labeling of groups of features

Andreas Reimer, Arthur van Goethem, Maxim Rylov, Marc van Kreveld, Bettina Speckmann
2015 Cartography and Geographic Information Science  
We investigate the labelling of feature groups by comparing manually generated labels to a set of formally defined, algorithmically optimal placements.  ...  All these groups of features might be best identified with a single label. Surprisingly, the (automated) labelling of groups of features has received little attention so far.  ...  Manual labels (grey) are often concave towards the island groups, the automated label has a lower distance to the islands. (b) Society Islands.  ...

FraudDroid: Automated Ad Fraud Detection for Android Apps [article]

Feng Dong, Haoyu Wang, Li Li, Yao Guo, Tegawende F. Bissyande, Tianming Liu, Guoai Xu, Jacques Klein
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Although mobile ad frauds have been widespread, state-of-the-art approaches in the literature have mainly focused on detecting the so-called static placement frauds, where only a single UI state is involved  ...  By using an ad-first exploration strategy, we can reduce the app automation time from 1 hour per app to 3 minutes on average, which is a significant gain towards ensuring scalability.  ...  We perform an exploratory study of a wide range of new ad fraud types in Android apps and propose an automated approach for detecting them in market apps.  ...

Generalization, On-the-Fly [chapter]

Robert Weibel, Dirk Burghardt
2008 Encyclopedia of GIS  
On-the-fly generalization, then, denotes the use of automated generalization techniques in real-time.  ...  On-the-fly generalization is intimately linked to highly interactive applications of cartography such as web mapping, mobile mapping (e.g. in location-based services), and real-time decision support systems  ...  While many algorithms exist for offline placement of map labels and icons, real-time labeling (e.g. for mobile maps in LBS) has only rarely been addressed in the literature so far [24] .  ...
