Spatial information theory : a theoretical basis for GIS : European conference, COSIT'93, Marciana Marina, Elba Island, Italy, September 19-22, 1993 : proceedings by Andrew U Frank( Book )
64 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in 3 languages and held by 961 libraries worldwide
"This volume collects the papers presented at the European Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT '93) held on the island of Elba, Italy, inSeptember 1993. Spatial information theory includes disciplinary topics and interdisciplinary issues dealing with the conceptualization and formalization of large-scale (geographic) space. It contributes towards a consistent theoretical basis for Geographic Information Systems (GIS). Geographic information systems are widely used in administration, planning, and science in many different countries, and for a wide variety ofapplications. Research results which relevant for GIS are distributed between many disciplines and contacts between researchers have been limited. At the same time, the development of GIS has been hinderedby the lack of a sound theoretical base. This conference was intended to help remedies these problems."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
Theories and methods of spatio-temporal reasoning in geographic space by Andrew U Frank( Book )
21 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Italian and held by 342 libraries worldwide
"This volume collects the papers presented at the first international conference dedicated to spatial and temporal reasoning in geographic space, entitled "GIS: from space to territory - theories and methods of spatio-temporal reasoning". Within the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (NCGIA, one of the supporters of the conference) the importance of spatial and temporal reasoning was recognized several years ago. Initial research found that spatial reasoning in geographic or large-scale space is different from spatial reasoning in small-scale space, as usually dealt with in robotics and expertsystems. Temporal reasoning has attracted interest in the artificial intelligence community. The volume also includes two invited papers: "Do people understand spatial concepts: the case of first-order primtives" by R.G. Golledge, and "Temporal databases" by R.T. Snodgrass."--PUBLISHER'S WEBSITE
Geographic objects with indeterminate boundaries by P. A Burrough( Book )
8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 252 libraries worldwide
Current geographical information systems are designed to deal almost exclusively with static, well-defined 'objects' such as local authority areas, roads and buildings. Such entities, exactly located in space, with properly defined attributes, are handled easily in modern GIS, yet they form only a small subset of all possible geographic objects. Many natural geographical phenomena (such as forests and hills) cannot be exactly defined or delineated, and to force them into the classic, crisp mode of conventional information theory is to lose much of their information. Most GIS are theoretically inadequate to deal with objects with poorly defined boundaries
Cognitive and linguistic aspects of geographic space by David M Mark( Book )
21 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and held by 175 libraries worldwide
20 years ago, from July 8 to 20, 1990, 60 researchers gathered for two weeks at Castillo-Palacio Magalia in Las Navas del Marques (Avila Province, Spain) to discuss cognitive and linguistic aspects of geographic space. This meeting was the start of successful research on cognitive issues in geographic information science, produced an edited book and led to a biannual conference (COSIT), a refereed journal, and a substantial and still growing research community
Life and motion of socio-economic units by Andrew Frank( Book )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 168 libraries worldwide
A wide-ranging and inter-disciplinary study of the way data is collected by governments, business and research organisations. Most GIS handle this data spatially and have difficulty with the socio-economic aspect. The definitive sourcebook
Real property transactions : procedures, transaction costs and models by J Zevenbergen( Book )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
Transactions in land and other real property differ between countries throughout Europe. The research was performed between 2001 and 2005 by researchers mainly from university departments related to land surveying, real estate management, geo-information sciences and knowledge engineering. This book represents the final outcome of that study

"The papers span a wide area including but not limited to Conceptual and logical models, Data management and retrieval, Geographical search engines, Web services, Query languages and interfaces, 2D and 3D information visualization, Exploratory cartography and interfaces, Data mining, Security and usability, Location-based services, Peer-to-peer computing, Cyber-geography, Semantic geo-spatial web, Mobile & Wireless GIS, Telematics and GIS Applications, Ubiquitous GIS, Personalization and adaptation as well as Wayfinding and navigation."--Jacket
Spatio-temporal databases : the CHOROCHRONOS approach by Timos Sellis( file )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
This book summarizes in a timely and representative manner research carried out in the CHOROCHRONOS Project, established as an EC funded Training and Mobility Research Network with the objective of studying the design, implementation, and application of spatio-temporal database management systems. The nine coherent chapters by leading research groups are written in a tutorial style, making the research contributions of the project accessible to a wider audience interested in spatio-temporal information processing. Follwing an introductory overview, the book presents chapters on ontologies for spatio-temporal databases, conceptual models, spatio-temporal models and languages, access methods and query processing, architectures and implementation of spatiotemporal DBMS, interactive spatio-temporal documents, and future perspectives
