Abstract
The use of linguistic model in spatial information has been an important topic discussed in relevant theoretical domain in recent years. On the basis of analyzing the geometrical composition of large-scale topographic map symbols and the geometric and semantic relationships among symbols, system of topographic map symbols was regarded as a two-dimensional graphic language and methods and theories of the linguistics were applied in cartographic language. The characteristics of topographic map symbols were analyzed, the internal structure and constructional rule of topographic map symbols were researched, and the phonetic and semantic structures of topographic map symbols were discussed.
