This paper presents the outcome of the study attempting to improve the cartographic visualization of crisp and fuzzy boundaries and internal structure of neighbourhoods as placial features. In the study preceding this paper, a number of visualization techniques depicting neighbourhood structure were generated. The evaluation survey results indicated that vague segments are easier to identify in comparison to crisp ones; most successful are the techniques which clearly show internal subdivision of a neighbourhood and allow to see the basemap under the symbology layer.
