Abstract

Simplification of geodata is promising in the context of data reduction for mobile applications. However,
choosing the best simplification algorithm depends on the correct parameterization of the algorithm with
respect to the specific data. This is a difficult task for any mobile application provider. This paper
proposes a generic approach to simplification, which gives the mobile application provider a means to
choose the appropriate algorithm including the most optimal parameter value according to his/her
demands. This demand-driven notion adds a new aspect to the research about simplification. The paper
proposes a design of an architecture for the determination of such simplification algorithms and
demonstrates satisfying results based on a study applied to Dutch topographic road data from TOP10NL.
