  • In order to extract the boundary of rural habitation, based on geographic name data and basic geographic information data, an extraction method that use polygon aggregation is raised, it can extract the boundary of three levels of rural habitation consists of town, administrative village and nature village. The method first extracts the boundary of nature village by aggregating the resident polygon, then extracts the boundary of administrative village by aggregating the boundary of nature village, and last extracts the boundary of town by aggregating the boundary of administrative village. The related methods of extracting the boundary of those three levels rural habitation has been given in detail during the experiment with basic geographic information data and geographic name data. Experimental results show the method can be a reference for boundary extraction of rural habitation.
