Title: METHOD OF PROCESSING MAP DATA
Abstract:
An electronic device incorporates a mapping application which is arranged to provide a route including at least one sequence of successive transport segments extending between a start location and an end location within a map. Potential display locations for graphic representations of individual transport segments within a sequence for a given 5 magnification level of the map are analysed. Responsive to the potential display locations for graphic representations for adjacent individual transport segments potentially intersecting, a merged graphic representation for the adjacent individual transport segments is provided in place of the graphic representations of individual transport segments. The merged graphic representation are then displayed on a portion of the map at 10 the given magnification level.
