Abstract

Many spatial information applications that involve associations of linear features use distinct linear referencing methods that were developed specifically for each application. This contradicts the goal to integrate information. To attain the ideal goal of completely-integrated spatial database, a conceptual unified linear referencing system have been built in Geographic Information System for Transportation (GIS-T). This paper presents an implementation strategy for the Linear Referencing System (LRS) based on an object-oriented approach. The paper includes a review of current object-oriented database technologies and the advantages of the object-oriented approach for LRS. In particular, O2 which is one of leading commercial OODBMSs, is presented as a promising platform for LRS.
