The design of a user interface integrating instruments for visual and textual representation and image interpretation is a relevant problem when developing an advisory system for environmental planning. Indeed, the user of the system needs a support to the interpretation of maps, that is, a tool that segments maps and automatically associates geometric regions on a map with those semantic labels useful for applying hints and advices suggested by the environmental planning system. In the article, we present the application of symbolic machine learning techniques to the interpretation of maps. Two inductive learning systems, namely, INDUBI/CSL and ATRE, have been used to complete the knowledge base of an expert system for environmental planning. The application described concerns the recognition of four environmental concepts that are relevant for environmental protection. The positive results obtained in two different experiments prove the strength of the adopted approach for the interpretation task.
