A Research Agenda for Geographic Information Science by Robert B. McMaster, E. Lynn Usery

By Robert B. McMaster, E. Lynn Usery

An in depth courting exists among GIS and various functions, together with cartography, photogrammetry, geodesy, surveying, desktop and data technology, and statistics, between others. Scientists coined the time period "geographic details technology (GIScience)" to explain the idea in the back of those fields. A study schedule for Geographic details technology widely information the problems and primary medical difficulties that has to be solved if using GIS in those and different fields is to advance.Immediately following the founding of the college Consortium for Geographic info technology (UCGIS), the gang pointed out in a study time table the themes that represented significant demanding situations to the GIS examine group. the 1st bankruptcy of this ebook offers an creation to the schedule and to the collective tips that the time table presents to researchers. Chapters 2-10 talk about 9 unique study demanding situations. Chapters 11-14 give you the foundation of the agenda's 4 "Emerging Themes." every one bankruptcy, written via researchers fascinated about the perception of the subjects, discusses easy examine components, the UCGIS strategy, the necessity for the nationwide examine time table, contributions to wisdom and society, and provides a whole set of references.The ultimate part attracts normal conclusions in regards to the UCGIS process and the outlined learn demanding situations.

Chroniques de geographie economique

Les progrès de l. a. technology économique sont rapides autour l. a. Seconde Guerre mondiale : l'économétrie s'affermit, los angeles macroéconomie prend son essor et les comptabilités nationales donnent enfin des bases solides à l'intervention des États. Rédigées de 1966 à 1985, les chroniques de géographie économique visent à informer les géographes de ces mouvements d'idées.

5, many of the parcel centroids could not be properly referenced from the TIGER street centerlines and would be assigned to the incorrect Census Block based on a point-in-polygon search. The solution to this problem is to develop a comprehensive set of street centerlines at a scale that ensures that the location of lots, houses, and other buildings will be topologically correct. In the United Kingdom, the Ordinance Survey solved the problem by digitizing buildings and roads from large-scale map sources.

Often the results of these infield scouting efforts are single point locations or isolated polygon locations with random positioning and spacing. , 1996; Stehman, 2001). In addition, research is necessary to identify the optimum method of interpolating between point observations to derive a continuous statistical surface in one of several data structures, including: raster, triangular-irregular-network (TIN), quad-tree, etc. , inverse distance-weighting versus geostatistical kriging (Atkinson and Lewis, 2000; Davidson and Csillag, 2003).

1985). , 1998). , 1997). Tools for managing uncertainty in conflation systems currently under development include fuzzy logic, semantic constraints, expert systems, Dempster-Shafer theory, and Bayesian networks. The following subsections briefly identify several additional generic spatial data integration issues (quality, consistency, and comparability) that should be addressed before data are collected, including: standards, geoid and datum, positional accuracy, classification system (scheme), in situ sampling logic, census enumeration logic, metadata collection, address matching, and privacy issues.
