  • Publication number: 20030088561
    Abstract: In a DB retrieval method, a two-step retrieval including quantitative and qualitative retrievals is interactively performed so that, through the operation of image information (e.g. map information) having a correspondence to a DB having text information such as attribute information stored therein, attribute information corresponding to the map information is retrieved from the DB. The quantitative retrieval includes a DB information reading process for reading image information, attribute information and information relevant thereto, and a quantitative retrieval process for making a quantitative retrieval including the partial overlaying of another information for retrieval on the original image information (or map information) or a rough retrieval with the other information used as a retrieval key called information lens, and storing the result of retrieval into a work file.

  • Patent number: 6381612
    Abstract: A link information management method which is capable of reducing the number of steps of a link maintenance processing of link information indicating a corresponding relationship between geographical information in a geographical information system and attribute information. To realize the method, geographical information are compared and judged by translating first geographical information based on corresponding points judged as the same points inputted on first and second geographical information by an operator. Further, update days of link information and attribute information are compared and judged, and current link information which causes the second geographical information and the attribute information to be correlated with each other is generated based on the compared and judged results of the link information and the attribute information. Then, attribute information and a closed area on the second geographical information are displayed by using the current link information thus generated.
