    The automatic classification of geometric topographical data into object types (and/or feature codes) can partially be done through recognition of shape [Keyes & Winstanley 2000]. Performance can be improved by extending the classification mechanism with contextual information. This improves the accuracy of automatic classification because we can frequently resolve ambiguous data by examining its context to provide evidence for category membership (thus informally, for example, we can say that a square on a map is more likely to depict a house if it is near a road).
