Automating the interpretation of a map in order to locate some geographical objects and their relations is a challenging task, which goes beyond the transformation of map images into a vectorized representation and the recognition of symbols. In this work, we present an approach to the automated interpretation of vectorized topographic maps. It is based on the generation of logic descriptions of maps and the application of symbolic Machine Learning tools to these descriptions. This paper focuses on the definition of computational methods for the generation of logic descriptions of map cells and briefly describes the use of these logic descriptions in an inductive learning task.

Abstract

Automating the interpretation of a map in order to locate some geographical objects and their relations is a challenging task, which goes beyond the transformation of map images into a vectorized representation and the recognition of symbols. In this work, we present an approach to the automated interpretation of vectorized topographic maps. It is based on the generation of logic descriptions of maps and the application of symbolic Machine Learning tools to these descriptions. This paper focuses on the definition of computational methods for the generation of logic descriptions of map cells and briefly describes the use of these logic descriptions in an inductive learning task.
