  • Object-Oriented Design for Temporal GISby Monica Wachowicz

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 132.95

    There has been an increasing demand in GIS for systems that support historical data: time-series data as well as mobility information. From a modelling perspective, there are advantages in integrating object-oriented analysis and design to databases as well as to visualisation capabilities of GIS. Object-Oriented Design for Temporal GIS explores the... more...

  • Virtual Reality in Geographyby Peter Fisher; David Unwin

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 167.95

    The ideas and techniques of virtual reality are now being made available for the creation of artificial or virtual geographies (a virtual geography refers to the creation of artificial geographies for use in research and teaching, using ideas and techniques from the field of virtual reality (VR)). Such virtual geographies are currently being constructed... more...

  • Life and Motion of Socio-Economic Unitsby Andrew Frank; Jonathan Raper; J. P. Cheylan

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 220.00

    One of the ongoing problems researchers in geography and GIS have is studying data that is inherently spatial over a long period of time. One of the main hurdles they have to overcome is the study of groups of people classified by their socio-economic status (one of the main means for governments, companies and research organisations to group together... more...

  • Remote Sensing and Urban Analysisby Jean-Paul Donnay; Mike J. Barnsley; Paul A. Longley

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 172.95

    One of the key geographical developments over the last two centuries has been that of urbanisation. In recent years this has exploded globally, particularly in developing countries. It is essential for governments, planners and researchers in geography and allied fields to understand this process and the main way of being able to do this is to accurately... more...

  • Spatial Analytical Perspectives On GISby M Fisher; H J Scholten; David Unwin

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 93.95

    The ability to manipulate spatial data in different forms and to extract additional meaning from them is at the heart of GIS, yet genuine spatial analysis tools are rarely incorporated into commercial software, thus seriously limiting their usefulness. The future of GIS technology wil depend largely on the incorporation of more powerful analytical... more...

  • The AGI Source Book For GISby David R. Green

  • Multidimensional Geographic Information Scienceby Jonathan Raper

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 167.95

    The way people normally view a GIS is 2-dimensional, a greatly limiting form. However, as developments occur within the field, researchers and practitioners are finding ways to make a GIS 3-dimensional, and in some instances even 4-dimensional. Being able to view a GIS in more than 2 dimensions greatly enhances its usability. This forward-looking text,... more...
