About this book

This book features papers presented at a NATO Advanced Research Workshop, help in Kyiv, Ukraine, in July 2006. The workshop focused on how uncertainty and fuzziness can be better modeled and implemented in Geographic Information Science (GIS) to help decision makers make more informed choices, especially as they pertain to environmental security and protection. This workshop brought together top researchers in Fuzzy GIS from both NATO countries as well as partner countries.
