Overview

A significant part of understanding how people use geographic information and technology concerns human cognition. This book provides the first comprehensive in-depth examination of the cognitive aspects of human-computer interaction for geographic information systems (GIS). Cognitive aspects are treated in relation to individual, group, behavioral, institutional, and cultural perspectives. Extensions of GIS in the form of spatial decision support systems and SDSS for groups are part of the geographic information technology considered.
Audience: Geographic information users, systems analysts and system designers, researchers in human-computer interaction will find this book an information resource for understanding cognitive aspects of geographic information technology use, and the methods appropriate for examining this use.

Booknews
The 27 papers cover spatial cognition, user behavior, user interfaces, cross-cultural influences, computer supported cooperative work, and task analysis and design methodologies. Research directions are also reported from discussion groups. The participants who gathered on the balmy island of Mallorca off the Mediterranean coast of Spain while March raged in their homelands, were specifically chosen to represent a wider range of disciplines than had addressed the subject in earlier conferences. Among the specific topics are the evolution of GIS user knowledge, cognitive and technical aspects of hypermaps, geographic interaction in city planning, and a task analysis approach to the visualization of geographic data.
