  • Patent number: 11994406
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for label placement that provide necessary information on a map when map features conflict without significantly impacting performance. Embodiments of the present disclosure can handle placement of map labels that vary in size, have prioritized label/feature groupings, apply to point, line, and area features, minimize overlap when there is no more open space, and render fast enough for interactive viewing.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: September 11, 2020
    Date of Patent: May 28, 2024
    Assignee: The Government of the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy
    Inventors: Brent Barre, Norman Schoenhardt
  • Publication number: 20220381582
    Abstract: A method including receiving a request associated with one or more map views associated with a map, transmitting a first set of one or more map views, generating a display of at least one of the first set of one or more map views, receiving a user input associated with the display of the at least one of the first set of one or more map views, and receiving a message associated with the user input. The method may include deter mining a mapping context function based on the received message, the mapping context function being based on one or more user actions associated with one or more features on at least one previously accessed map, determining whether to modify a second set of one or more map views based on the mapping context function, and transmitting the second set of one or more map views.

  • Patent number: 10546418
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to visualization of positional geospatial uncertainty. Initially, a map image request for geographic features is received from a client computing device, where the map image request includes an uncertainty type, a distribution shape, and a selected visualization technique. An uncertainty buffer pixel size is determined based on a geographic distance covered by the distribution shape.
