English abstract:
In this poster, we propose an approach to generalize mixed metro map layouts with user-defined shapes for route-finding and ad-vertisement purposes. In a mixed layout, specific lines are arranged in an iconic shape, and the remaining are in octilinear styles. The shape is expected to be recognizable, while the layout still fulfilling the classical octilinear design criteria for metro maps. The approach is in three steps, where we first search for the best fitting edge segment that approximates the guide shape and utilize least squares optimization to synthesize the layout automatically.
