characteristics of such applications. Then, the proposed algorithm
is more efficient because Qi operator rather than Angle operator is
employed in the search process. In a word, based on the defined
table above, the time efficiency of the algorithm has been
improved to great extent, which can satisfy better the
requirements of ITS application.
The ITS application requires to build the topological relationships
of road network on the fly. And the efficiency of the algorithm is
related to the organization and index of the data. Therefore, the
scheme of the road network data is need to be researched to
improve the efficiency of the algorithm. Moreover, the current
algorithm constructs the topology of all the data when the
geometry of any data changes. So, how to only build the topology
of the changed data is what we should research in the next step.
