This paper describes some algebraic models for the automated generalization of area-patches. These models are based on techniques developed in mathematical morphology, which is a science dealing with the form and shapes of objects, and will form an algebraic basis for area-patch generalization. These models are fully illustrated and tested. The results show that such models are very promising.
