  • GIS Basicsby Stephen Wise

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 99.95

    Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are computer systems for storing, displaying and analyzing spatial data. The past twenty years have seen a rapid growth in their use in government, commerce and academia, and they can be used for managing a network of utilities, from handling census data through to planning the location of a new supermarket. But... more...

  • Spatial Data Qualityby Wenzhong Shi; Peter Fisher; Michael F. Goodchild

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 167.95

    As research in the geosciences and social sciences becomes increasingly dependent on computers, applications such as geographical information systems are becoming indispensable tools. But the digital representations of phenomena that these systems require are often of poor quality, leading to inaccurate results, uncertainty, error propagation, and... more...

  • In the Land of White Deathby Valerian Albanov

    Random House Publishing Group 2001; US$ 17.00

    In 1912, six months after Robert Falcon Scott and four of his men came to grief in Antarctica, a thirty-two-year-old Russian navigator named Valerian Albanov embarked on an expedition that would prove even more disastrous. In search of new Arctic hunting grounds, Albanov's ship, the Saint Anna, was frozen fast in the pack ice of the treacherous Kara... more...

  • Remote Sensing and GIS Accuracy Assessmentby Ross S. Lunetta; John G. Lyon

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 220.00

    The development of robust accuracy assessment methods for the validation of spatial data represents a difficult challenge for the geospatial science community. Obstacles to robust assessments include continuous data characteristics and positional errors, demanding ongoing development by GIS and remote sensing experts. Based upon a special symposium... more...

  • Expert Systems and Geographic Information Systems for Impact Assessmentby Agustin Rodriguez-Bachiller; John Glasson

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 68.95

    Impact Assessment is becoming part and parcel of an increasing number of development proposals in the UK and Europe. As the practice of Impact Assessment develops it becomes more standardized and good practice starts to be defined. However, the quality of Impact Assessment is still far from satisfactory. Expert Systems and GIS for Impact Assessment... more...

  • GeoSensor Networksby Anthony Stefanidis; Silvia Nittel

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 172.95

    GeoSensor Networks addresses multiple research challenges related to real-time geosensor data collection, management, analysis, and delivery. It examines these issues in a collection of papers submitted by experts in diverse research domains. Providing a cross-disciplinary forum that will foster collaboration and development, this volume has four... more...

  • Unifying Geographyby David T. Herbert; John A. Matthews

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 69.95

    It can be argued that the differences in content and approach between physical and human geography, and also within its sub-disciplines, are often overemphasised. The result is that geography is often seen as a diverse and dynamic subject, but also as a disorganised and fragmenting one, without a focus. Unifying Geography focuses on the plural and... more...

  • Geography in the Early Yearsby Joanna Birch; Joy Palmer

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 50.95

    This completely revised and updated second edition of Geography in the Early Years presents a lively and comprehensive overview of teaching and learning in geography. Theoretical aspects of early years teaching in geography are complemented by up-to-date research findings and illustrated with discussion, a wealth of case studies, and suggestions... more...

  • Thermal Remote Sensing in Land Surface Processingby Dale A. Quattrochi; Jeffrey C. Luvall

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 172.95

    Although remote sensing is recognized as a powerful tool, less attention has been given in the past to the use of thermal, and especially thermal infrared (TIR) remote sensing. TIR data is useful for understanding the fluxes and redistribution of materials as a key aspect of land surface processes and land-atmosphere inter-relationships. This book... more...

  • Foundations of Geographic Information Scienceby Matt Duckham; Michael F. Goodchild; Michael Worboys

    CRC Press 2004; US$ 132.95

    As the use of geographical information systems develops apace, a significant strand of research activity is being directed to the fundamental nature of geographic information. This volume contains a collection of essays and discussions on this theme. What is geographic information? What fundamental principles are associated with it? How can it be... more...
