Introduction Of OpenStreetMap For The Automatic Generation Of Destination Maps

Information

Abstract

A destination map allows all travelers, within the given region of interest, to reach the same destination, no matter where exactly they start their journey at. For this purpose the important roads for traversing the road network are chosen, while the non-important roads are removed for clarity. These selected roads are then simplified to reduce unnecessary complexity, while maintaining the structure of the road network. The chosen data is then tweaked to increase the visibility of the small roads. During this process the layout is iteratively changed and evaluated according to certain aspects, and if a newly proposed layout performs better than the old one, that new one forms the basis for all future changes. In this work a method for automatically creating destination maps is implemented based on the algorithm proposed in the paper by Kopf et al. [KAB+10], with efforts made to improve the original work.
