  • Geospatial Technology and the Role of Location in Science

    Globalisation has not led to the ‘death of geography’. Intensified relations between communities in different parts of the world have only highlighted the need for understanding and managing phenomena on a variety of geographic scales. From global warming to credit crunch, and from epidemics to terrorism, causes and solutions are sought on local, ...

  • Remote Sensing of Impervious Surfaces

    Remote sensing of impervious surfaces has matured using advances in geospatial technology so recent that its applications have received only sporadic coverage in remote sensing literature. Remote Sensing of Impervious Surfaces is the first to focus entirely on this developing field. It provides detailed coverage of mapping, data extraction, and ...

  • Geospatial Technologies and Homeland Security

    This edited volume, based upon the papers presented during the 'Geospatial Technologies and Homeland Security Symposium' on Nov. 15, 2006, presents an overview of the latest development of geospatial technologies (including, but not limited to, GIS, RS, GPS, LBS, spatial analysis and modelling etc.) and their applications in piecing together the ...

  • Geographic Information and Cartography for Risk and Crisis Management

    Cartography and geographic information (GI) are remarkably appropriate for the requirements of early warning (EW) and crisis management (CM). The use of geospatial technology has increased tremendously in the last years. ICT has changed from just using maps created in advance, to new approaches, allowing individuals (decision-makers) to use ...

  • Remote Sensing and Geospatial Technologies for Coastal Ecosystem Assessment and Management

    In this landmark publication, leading experts detail how remote sensing and related geospatial technologies can be used for coastal ecosystem assessment and management.This book is divided into three major parts. In the first part several conceptual and technical issues of applying remote sensing and geospatial technologies in the coastal ...

  • Geospatial Services and Applications for the Internet

    The use of geospatial technologies has become ubiquitous since the leading Internet vendors delivered a number of popular map websites. Today, businesses are either migrating location-specific capabilities into their information systems, or expanding existing Geospatial Information Systems (GIS) implementation into enterprise-wide solutions. As ...

  • Geospatial Technology for Earth Observation

    Earth Observation interacts with space, remote sensing, communication, and information technologies, and plays an increasingly significant role in Earth related scientific studies, resource management, homeland security, topographic mapping, and development of a healthy, sustainable environment and community. Geospatial Technology for Earth ...

  • Coastal and Marine Geospatial Technologies

    This international collection of papers represents a selected and up-to-date overview of some of the main areas of research into the application of the geospatial technologies, including geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing, digital mapping, global positioning systems (GPS), databases, Internet technology, and mobile field-data ...

  • Standard-Based Data and Information Systems for Earth Observation

    This book aims at documenting recent developments in standard-based systems for processing, archiving, managing and distributing Earth Observation data and derived information products. On-going standards efforts that influence how these data and information systems operate are presented. Some recent developments in geospatial knowledge systems ...
