Fan et al. 18 The morphological analyses are categorized in two classes. Firstly, it investigated whether different types of buildings in general differ from size and shape of building footprints, whereby size is represented by area and shape is measured by the rectangularity of the footprint polygon. The standard approach to measuring rectangularity is to use the ratio of the footprint area to the area of its minimum bounding rectangle (MBR), which is calculated as rectangularity = area(polygon) area(MBR) (2) The larger the rectangularity is, the simpler the building is in architectural style.

This study extends our previous work on qualitative representations of spatial objects in sketch maps. In this study, we propose qualitative representations to formalize spatial configurations between extended objects such as containment (topology) of landmarks in city-block, their orientations, and the topology of city-blocks themselves. We identify these representations being robust against schematizations, distortions, and other cognitive effects (Tversky 1992, 2003; Huynh and Doherty 2007) found in sketch maps.

Jan et al. 5 Evaluation In this section, the proposed representations are evaluated by aligning aforementioned 28 sketch maps with corresponding metric maps. The sketch maps are generated by different participants at University of Münster, Germany. Spatial aggregation is ubiquitous in the sketch maps world. Particularly, street segments and city-blocks are highly aggregated spatial features (see Fig. 7a). After our participants have completed drawing the sketch maps, we asked them to describe and indicate the spatial objects on the metric maps.
