Geospatial Analysis and Modelling

The development of GIS and carto-graphy can be characterised as information rich and knowledge poor. That is, the amount of geospatial information collected using geospatial technologies, including remote sensing, global positioning systems and digital mapping technology, has been growing rapidly, whereas geospatial knowledge or ‘useful information’, for decision making in terms of real-world problem solving is rather limited. Terabytes of geospatial information in the form of satellite imagery, aerial photos and maps have been integrated into Google Maps and Google Earth so that ordinary people using a decent internet-connected home computer can zoom from space right down to street level...

Academia and Geospatial Interoperability

Interoperability between Geospatial Information Systems is an area of increasing interest within academic institutions, not only in Geography and other geo-related areas but also in Computer Science departments. From the software-engineering point of view, a revolution may be said to have occurred in the way we design such systems, a revolution inspired by the appearance of OGC standards, guidelines and working documents. IAAA Lab The Advanced Information Systems Laboratory (IAAA Lab) is a multidisciplinary research and development unit in the Computer Science and Systems Engineering Department of the University of Zaragoza. Here OGC specifications are referred to, explained, and used... (read more)
