Abstract. As a critical component of road network data, stroke has been widely used in analysis and application of road network. However, most conventional stroke generation strategies are based solely on a regular angle threshold, ignoring the structural characteristics of the road network. In fact, map information comes from the diversity and difference of elements and their distribution characteristics. Different road network structures should also correspond to different angle thresholds, rather than a fixed value. Therefore, quantitatively describing the structure characteristics of road network, has an important impact on the determination of the threshold in stroke generation strategies. In this paper, we propose an algorithm of stroke generation based on spatial feature information, which achieves the selection of the optimal threshold under different road network structures.
