An algorithmic approach to the interpretation of floorplan maps

ABSTRACT
Recent years have seen an increasing use of computers for office automation. Despite the ongoing increase in digital management of documents (either maps or office documents) the major part of communication is still based on paper. Tools to convert information on paper into an interpreted and understandable computer representation are then requested in all the application fields providing the management of high-level documents, and specially where the amounts of data to be digitized is very large, as in the case of the floorplan maps. Floorplan maps are interesting both from the user point of view, due to the wider and wider usage of cheap computer based system for their production, processing and management, and from the technical point of view, since they give the possibility of tackling quite all problems relative to cadastral based maps. In this paper we present a new algorithm that starting from a low-level image representing a floorplan map and created using a very primitive drawing package, achieves the classification of all the objects in the documents and provides, at last, the document interpretation at a semantic level. This is an important improvement over existing systems still limited to little algorithmic support of the user in the conversion phase from raster to vector representation.
