Programs and data files give tabular country information on soil characteristics and derived soil properties from the ...

  • Map-based Mobile Services

    The book is divided into three parts: theory, method and implementation. Starting with a summary of the state-of-the-art in mobile technologies, the first part analyses their impacts on cartography and pinpoints the missing theories concerned with the development of map-based mobile services. A conceptual framework of mobile cartography is then ...

  • 3-D Structural Geology

    This is a handbook of practical techniques for making the best possible interpretation of geological structures at the map scale and for extracting the maximum amount of information from surface and subsurface maps. The 3-D structure is defined by internally consistent structure contour maps and cross sections of all horizons and faults. The book ...

  • Digital Soil Mapping with Limited Data

    There has been considerable expansion in the use of digital soil mapping technologies and development of methodologies that improve digital soil mapping at all scales and levels of resolution. These developments have occurred in all parts of the world in the past few years and also in countries where it was previously absent. There is almost ...

  • Complexity and Spatial Networks

    This book offers a panoramic view of recent advances in spatial complexity, in order to enhance our understanding of complex spatial networks by simplicity in terms of both the basic driving forces of systemic impacts and the modelling of such systems. Simple models mapping out the evolution of complex networks are undoubtedly a key issue in ...

  • Location Based Services and TeleCartography

    This book presents a general picture of research-driven activities related to location- and map-based services. This type of research has emerged in recent years in the areas of positioning, spatial modeling, and cartographic communication as well as in the emerging fields of ubiquitous cartography, geopervasive services and user-centered ...

  • Location Based Services and TeleCartography II

    This book gives a general view of research-driven activities related to the location and map-based services. Such activities emerged in the last years especially concerning issues of positioning, spatial modelling, cartographic communication as well as in the fields of ubiquitous cartography, geo-pervasive services, user-centered modelling or ...
