About this book

Addresses scientists and technical experts who have already some background knowledge in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and who want to know more about standardisation in GIS, in particular, the role of the ISO. The authors also meet the needs of programmers who are going to implement ISO 19100 standards and who need a better understanding of the overall structure of the standards.

From the reviews: "The work of ISO/TC211 in the field of geographic information standards is becoming known to many in the industry ! . This book ! is a further attempt to explain what is happening and to provide a source of reference material. ! In summary, the book contains a vast amount of information that provides an invaluable reference volume. ! the book will serve its intended market well and lifts the veil a little more on the world of GI standardisation." (Iain Greenway, Geomatics World, Vol. 13 (1), November/December, 2004) "The book addresses scientists and technical experts who have already some background knowledge in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and who want to know more about standardisation in GIS ! . The authors also meet the needs of programmers who are going to implement ISO 19100 standards ! . Last, but not least, this richly illustrated book will help readers to better understand the rather abstract ISO documents." (Geomatik Schweiz/Geomatique/Geomatica, Vol. 102 (5), 2004)
