Automating the map generalization process has traditionally been a major focus of research in cartography and GIS environment, even though a usable holistic generalization method is still lacking. The model described in this paper examines the generalization process from a new standpoint that views the map as a stage in area warfare. A pseudo physical model was developed for automated generalization employing the electric field theory toward understanding and describing the action and behaviorfatcat:6vf6nksfordedopgjieicmviri
