About this book
Identifying state-of-the-art developments and monitoring progress in various fields of application, this volume features contributions from the Second International Conference on Management Information Systems incorporating GIS and remote sensing. The papers presented describe solutions designed to increase quality and come from researchers in academia and industry, land use planners, technology network managers and others concerned with the study of problems and applications in this area. Data acquisition facilities, database features and human interface capabilities are among the topics discussed.
