Automatic generalisation for map production has been in use for decades. The process is still, however, only semi-automatic in that the expert selects and sequences the required generalisation operators and the algorithms that implement them and provides parameter values. Different techniques can be applied to rural and urban areas at the discretion of the expert, working to a fixed target scale and with familiar feature types. But in the case of on-demand mapping the expert will be replaced by a system that will be able to automatically select, sequence and execute map generalisation operations according to user requirements.
