As a critical data management task, conflation in GIS aims to determine the corresponding features from different datasets that in reality represent the same entities. This is called feature matching, which is used as a guidance to merge attributes of corresponding features between datasets. Based on the classification of features, there are point, polyline, and polygon matching methods. This study focuses on matching polygons and explores optimization–based matching methods for conflating two datasets.
