Qualitative representations are suitable for sketch understanding systems because they highlight important relationships while leaving out details that are not essential for conceptual understanding. These representations can be used to perform spatial analogies between sketches, which determine qualitative similarities and differences. However, there are cases where including quantitative information is necessary for accurately representing a sketch. We describe a method for using quantitative information to constrain qualitative spatial analogies. The utility of this method is demonstrated in the context of a sketch based educational software system. Importantly, using quantitative information to improve analogical matches is not domain specific. It can be used in any situation where qualitative and quantitative spatial information must be combined to accurately interpret a sketch. This approach has the potential to improve sketch understanding in educational software applications for highly spatial domains.
