These systems have the principle functions of capturing, storing, representing, manipulating, and displaying data in 2-D and 3-D worlds. This book approaches its subject from the perspectives of informatics and geography, presenting methods of conceptual modeling developed in computer science that provide valuable aids for resolving spatial problems. This book is an essential textbook for both students and practitioners. It is indispensable for academic geographers, computer scientists, and the GIS professional. Key Features* Serves as the first comprehensive textbook on the field of Spatial Information Systems (also known as Geographic Information Systems)* Contains extensive illustrations* Presents numerous detailed examples
