This book focuses on research advances in approaches for incorporating explicit handling of uncertainty, especially by fuzzy sets, to address geographic problems. It has two aims: to stimulate research in the theory and application of fuzzy sets to spatial information management and geographic problem solving; and to highlight advances that have matured so much that geoscientists, computer scientists, geographers, et al. use fuzzy modeling. The book includes examples of the use of fuzzy sets in representational issues such as terrain features, landscape morphology, spatial extents and approaches for spatial interpolation, plus applications using fuzzy sets covering data mining, spatial decision making, ecological simulation, and reliability in GIS.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Fuzzy Modelling … is a collection of papers of diverse but interrelated topics on the use of fuzzy logic … . The reader is given enough information and references … . this book will provide an excellent background on fuzzy logic and how it can be applied to a variety of spatial problems. It is also a valuable information source for professors, graduate students or industry professionals, and it should be on their bookshelves or at least in the library." (Alvin Simms, Geomatica, Vol. 60 (4), 2006)
