About this book

A collection of peer-reviewed articles, this multidisciplinary book combines coverage of topics such as GIS, computer science, image processing, and information and data processing. The book brings together specialists to present the latest research on visualization and computation of dynamics in geographic domains. The coverage incorporates theoretical, cognitive, methodological, and applied articles, making it not only a top-notch reference but also a textbook for course in this field. Containing an 8-page colour insert, the book is divided into three sections: Conceptualization, Representation, and Data Models; Analysis, Computation, and Modeling; and Visualization and Simulation.
