Abstract: This paper deals with the problem of displaying large Digital Elevation Model data in 3D GIS. Current approaches relate to the splitting algorithms by 2D Polygonal Vector Data such as Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO-TSA) and Genetic Algorithm (GA-TSA). We will, herein, present another method based on stochastic optimization for the considered problem. It also employs some ideas of Wife-Selection scenario and Stick Procedure. The new method allows us to quickly find the optimal saving threshold. The comparison with the state-of-the-art method will be made to verify the efficiency of the proposed method.
