Abstract: The Fractal method, which is originated from geo-sciences, has been widely applied in various sciences and disciplines. This paper, however, concentrates on the essence of its application, i.e. , how much information it can provide for us, what limit it has, how it can be combined with other methods, in map generalization. Several issues related to the application of Extended Fractal in automatic map generalization is expounded.

Key words: Automatic Map Generalization, Extended Fractal Dimension, Fractal Dimension, Multiple Dimension Database
