1). The template distinguishes between 34 S. Balley et al. Fig. 7 Samples of source datasets in the EuroSDR generalisation study (maps are reduced in size) constraints on one object, on two objects, and on groups of objects. An importance value indicates the importance of satisfying the specific constraint in the final output. This value does not indicate in what sequence the constraints should be solved (Ruas 1999). Satisfying less important constraints first may be necessary to satisfy more important constraints later.

E. g. the ‘‘importance’’ of roads, with an enumerated domain of values: ‘‘low’’, ‘‘medium’’ and ‘‘high’’). This information influences the choice of source data and may lead to some data restructuration. This information can govern a specific option for data integration, where the user’s data is not displayed geometrically but is projected as new properties on the referential features (as exemplified in Sect. 6). e. the organisation of entities and their properties into feature types, attribute types and association types.

G. an emergency situation). The combination of these parameters is called user requirements. Unfortunately, the end-user is not always given a chance to express their requirements. Instead, they are assessed by the customer who will order the map (the user and customer may be the same person).

The expression and interpretation of requirements is typically an iterative process.
