Analysis and Configuration of Boundary Difference Calculations

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 8836)


In the field of land management, stakeholders (people) everywhere have many disputes over the location of boundaries between private land and public land. We find that the stakeholders disagree with each other over boundaries. We propose an approach that helps people to come to an agreement on position of boundaries (including pixel-based approach, polygon-based approach and middle boundary approach). The experiments are carried out on data relating to public parks in Auckland, New Zealand. The results of the experiments highlight the differences between different stakeholder’s percieved boundaries.
