About this book
GeoInformation Science today encompasses more than just traditional technologies such as remote sensing, GIS, and supporting disciplines. As the science continues to become more multidisciplinary, the literature remains compartmentalized according to the traditional disciplinary boundaries. This book fills the gaps in the literature by capturing recent developments in GeoInformation Science. The authors explain how advanced technology and concepts play a significant role in recent advancements. The text provides overviews of the subjects, discusses the current state of the science and technology, and highlights the future directions and developments.
