Fig. 1. Examples of symbolization of country’s territory in shape representation Indetermination. The shape representation relies on the cognition of humans with different background knowledge, intending interests and emotions. So for the same region object, different persons may recognize getting different shapes. The indetermination of region shape recognition makes the shape query uncertain in template selection and the decision degree to which extent two objects are similar. The same building may be identified as L, U or V shape for different persons.
