Abstract The field of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) has experienced a rapid and ongoing growth of available sources for geospatial data. This growth has demanded more data integration in order to explore the benefits of these data further. However, many data providers implies many points of view for the same phenomena: geospatial features. We need sophisticated procedures aiming to find the correspondences between two vector datasets, a process named geospatial data matching. Similarity measures are key-tools for matching methods, so it is interesting to review these concepts together. This article provides a survey of 30 years of research into the measures and methods facing geospatial data matching. Our survey presents related work and develops a common taxonomy that permits us to compare measures and methods. This study points out relevant issues that may help to discover the potential of these approaches in many applications, like data integration, conflation, quality evaluation, and data management.
