About this book

Going beyond GIS, geocomputation embraces diverse areas of modelling, simulation and data organization in a spatial context. This book covers topics such as high performance computer systems, intelligent processing, visualization, and modelling. It should provide a basis for discussion of emergent computer-based tools and techniques, and their applications to spatial computation.
