  • 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...

  • 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...

  • GIS and GeoComputationby Peter Atkinson

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 209.95

    Geographic Information Systems are computer-based systems for geographic analysis. They have been developed over the past twenty five years and are now widely used. A recent research direction has been the development of geocomputation , representing computer-based geographical analysis beyond the traditional bounds of GIS. In geocomputation, the computer... more...

  • GIS for Group Decision Makingby Piotr Jankowski; Timothy Nyerges

  • Uncertainty in Geographical Informationby Jingxiong Zhang; Michael F. Goodchild

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 121.95

    As Geographic Information Systems (GIS) have developed and their applications have been extended, the issue of uncertainty has become increasingly recognized. It is highlighted by the need to demystify the inherently complex geographical world to facilitate computerization in GIS, by the inaccuracies that emerge from man-machine interactions in data... more...
