ACM SIGSPATIAL Cup 2014

Introducing the 3rd GIS-focused algorithm competition, ACM SIGSPATIAL Cup 2014.

The 2014 contest will be about map generalization, which is a very commonly used
concept in creating maps of different scales. Map generalization is used in many
GIS and business mapping applications for creating maps with as few vertices as
possible. The process of map generalization reduces the amount of data that is
required on the client to produce maps without losing the general shape of the
map.

For this years contest, each team will be given access to a large amount of line
string geometries that are boundaries of administrative areas along with some
point data that is used to constrain these lines. The objective of the contest
is to reduce the number of vertices in the input line strings while preserving
the topological constraints among the lines and the point data. The submitted
programs will be evaluated by the contest organizers on multiple datasets and
will be ranked quantitatively based on their correctness and speed.
