6707.2 - Research on Automatic Generation of Map Symbols based on Cognitive Semantics Analysis

Thursday, July 6
4:30 PM - 4:50 PM
Location: Maryland B

In the context of Location-based Services (LBS), map making emphasizes the real time automatic generation of map symbols. Focused on this problem, the principle of “real - cognition - language” of cognitive linguistics is used for reference to analyze the cognitive semantic theory of map symbols, which can be concluded as “geographical elements - description of geographic concepts - semantics and expression”. The concept of "symbol- morpheme" is proposed, which is the minimum atom that relates the graphic and semantic aspect of symbols. A Context Free Grammar (CFG) of map symbol automatic generation is proposed, which can be described as the simplest form of “symbol-morphemes and generation rules”, evolves the process of map symbols design to the process of symbol-morphemes construction under the control of syntax rules. The work of this paper can help to promote the automation level of map symbols on computer, as well as further understanding of the cognitive mechanism of map symbols.
