  • Diffusion and Use of Geographic Information Technologies

    The diffusion and use of geographic information technologies have increased dramatically in recent years. This book considers the geographic information systems (GIS) phenomenon from a number of different perspectives. It presents the findings of recent research on the diffusion of GIS in Europe and North America. These highlight the extent ...

  • Frontiers of Geographic Information Technology

    Although designed primarily for desktop mapping and analysis, Geographic Information Systems have, for some years, been ‘coupled’ to other ‘allied’ technologies. This coupling or integration has occurred for some time due to the limitations in commercially available systems. It has occurred in several areas including visualisation (virtual ...

  • Cognitive Aspects of Human-Computer Interaction for Geographic Information Systems

    A significant part of understanding how people use geographic information and technology concerns human cognition. This book provides the first comprehensive in-depth examination of the cognitive aspects of human-computer interaction for geographic information systems (GIS). Cognitive aspects are treated in relation to individual, group, ...

  • Algorithmic Foundations of Geographic Information Systems

    This tutorial survey brings together two lines of research and development whose interaction promises to have significant practical impact on the area of spatial information processing in the near future: geographic information systems (GIS) and geometric computation or, more particularly, geometric algorithms and spatial data structures. In nine ...

  • Interoperating Geographic Information Systems

    Geographic information systems have developed rapidly in the past decade, and are now a major class of software, with applications that include infrastructure maintenance, resource management, agriculture, Earth science, and planning. But a lack of standards has led to a general inability for one GIS to interoperate with another. It is ...
