Optimization of river network representation data models for web‐based systems

Web‐based systems allow users to filter data and resources using river network structure on interactive map environments that use server side processing. With the increasing resolution of river networks, optimized methods for storage of river network representation in databases and efficient queries on the river network structure become critical. This paper presents a detailed study of widely used methods for representing generic networks in relational databases and benchmarking common queries on river network data using these methods.
