These methods have produced good results for some high-quality topographic maps, but the results are not satisfactory for low-quality maps, mainly due to the following three problems [5]: (1) color aliasing and false colors on scanned maps due to poor paper (such as paper turning yellow over time) or printing quality and the performance of the scanner (on a 96-dot-per-inch (DPI) resolution map, most contour lines are 2 to 4 pixels in width; thus, color deviation occupies a large portion in pixels of lines); (2) conglutination of adjacent lines to form thick lines in some areas of a scanned map where contour lines are densely distributed [6]; (3) a large number of contour lines gaps caused by intersecting and overlapping information on a topographic map after color segmentation.
