A variety of recurring geographic entities form collections of point, line, or area features. Examples are groups of islands (Archipelago), relief features in deserts, periglacial lakes or geomorphological forms, such as drumlins and sinkholes. All these groups of features might be best identified with a single label. Surprisingly, the (automated)...

We present an algorithm that labels linear features with two matched toponyms describing the left and the right side of a line, respectively. Such a pairwise line labeling strategy is commonly used in manually produced maps to differentiate administrative or other geographic divisions. Our approach solves two basic tasks of the automated map labeli...

One of the subtasks of automated map labelling that has received little attention so far is the labelling of areas. Geographic areas often are represented by concave polygons which pose severe limitations on straightforward solutions due to their great variety of shape, a fact worsened by the lack of measures for quantifying feature-label relations...

Topographic maps are arguably one of the most information-dense, yet intuitively usable, graphical artifacts produced by mankind. Cartography as science and practice has developed and collected a wealth of design principles and techniques to cope with the problems of high graphical density, especially for the case of label placement. Many of the mo...

The lettering process, including assigning names to point features, is an essential part of map production. While there have been numerous and varied research efforts to automate point-feature label placement (PFLP), none of them seems to have taken into account the many well-established cartographic precepts for point-feature annotation used by hu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
There have been numerous and varied research efforts to automate point-feature label placement (PFLP). It seems that many well-established precepts for point-feature annotation used by human cartographers have been neglected so far. As a consequence, the currently implemented, fully automated solutions are limiting computer generated maps in their...

1 Zusammenfassung: Beginnend mit Montag, dem 11.11.2013, fanden am Geographischen Institut der Universität Heidelberg eine Vielzahl von Aktivitäten zur Unterstützung der Katastrophenhelfer und Crisis-Mapper in Abstimmung mit dem Humanitarian OSM Team (HOT), dem Roten Kreuz und dem Digital Humanitarian Network (DHN) statt. Die Aktivitäten umfassten...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
We are currently witnessing a rapid development of automated cartography through the web mapping technologies. And one of the most important aspects of this cartography is a map labeling. Most modern platforms that can publish spatial data to the web use international standards provided by Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). Among the other specifica...
