Abstract

Since maps are planar representations of parts or all of the earth’s surface, they serve as navigational tools. Navigation consists of positioning and guidance and the use of maps seems to be the missing link Based on a position visualized in the map, guidance depends on map information about the closer or wider surrounding of the position.
