Hand-designed destination maps include only the most important roads in the region and are non-uniformly scaled to ensure that all of the important roads from the highways to the residential streets are visible. In this project we will automatically design a hand-designed destination maps out of a map from Google Maps.
In order to build a hand-designed destination maps we will first obtain from Google Maps information regarding the roads in the examined area. Then, we will develop a decision rule to decide which road should be drawn. Finally, a sketched map will be drawn. Several sketch techniques will be examined.
