5709.3 - A Electronic Map Data Model Based on PDF

Wednesday, July 5

Location: Harding

In this paper, we proposed the PDFEMAP (PDF electronic map) that is a kind of new electronic map products aiming at the current situation and demand of the use of electronic map products. Firstly gives the definition and characteristics of PDFEMAP, followed by a detailed description of the data model and method for generating PDFEMAP, and finally expounds application modes of the PDFEMAP which feasibility and effectiveness are verified.PDFEMAP not only has the paper map visual expression effect, but also has some functions of the vector map, can map hierarchical display, target attribute query, spatial coordinate query and spatial measurement and other operations.
As the use of PDF format to store geographic information data, PDFEMAP product terminals do not need to rely on dedicated and expensive paid GIS software, which reduce the user requirements to use PDFEMAP. Setting up a "bridge" between the users of the mapping of professional and non-professional, maximumly closing the distance between the map producer and the user, PDFEMAP satisfies the requirement of using geographic information.
As a new electronic map, PDFEMAP will break the boundary of GIS professional application, and it is of great significance for non-professional of GIS to use geographic information and improve emergency mapping guarantee capability.
