Route planning using height maps
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this thesis I look at the problem of using height maps as a data source for an existing route planner which is based around a path network derived from a road network map. The primary application is in situations where a road network is not sufficient as a representation of the real world. A route planner that only uses roads is limited to only plan routes based on roads. An example which I use is a square which has several nearby roads, but not enough to let the route planner plan routes that cross the square. I investigate if height maps can help plan better routes under such circumstances, and the conditions for using it in an existing system.
