research on maps for recreational use
I am trying to develop a solution this problem:
To generate a map for trip with say 4 or 5 clearly marked destinations on a scenic byway. The uniqueness of the map is the level of detail at each destination should be directly propotional to amount of stay at that destination.
[Ofcourse the trip is preplanned with start & end points and input does include the amount of stay at every point (in say hours).]
As you guys can sense I am clear newbie in this field and started research on this topic only few days back. I would dearly appreciate if you could provide some feedback on following:
1> what are resources; you guys are referring to: (in developing a solution for a problem that you have described in the posting)
2> Is there similar R&D going on simultaneously on this field in other companies or educational institutions that you are aware of:
3> Any other resourceful websites/ ideas/ softwares which might aid in formulating a solution to these klind of problems that you could suggest
On this site, we have an entire department dedicated to looking for such solutions. I suggest taking a look at the
