    In this paper we describe the application of geometric analogies to the GeoComputation domain. We describe geometric analogies that include attributes (patterns and color). We identify two variants on an attribute matching algorithm that are required to solve these problems. Next we describe how we use one of these algorithms to identify targeted structures within a topographic database (map). We describe a how a problem in topographic datasets is solved using this technique, detailing results on four different datasets. Finally, we outline a variety of other problems that are being addressed, based on the same algorithm.
