Overview

This book deals with the basic concepts of GIS and optimization. It provides an overview of various integration protocols that are termed GIS-O integration strategies applied to practical applications. It also develops an integration approach for the vehicle routing problem with resource and distance requirements and approves it with numerical results. The book will be useful for researchers, decision makers, and practitioners who try to implement upgraded systems that derive benefits of both GIS and optimization.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Another CRC Press instant book, another slim volume, but this one meets a largely unfulfilled need; for it links the optimization techniques of operations research (OR) with the spatial data management and analysis techniques of GIS. … The book is laid out in a clear and straightforward manner and consequently is remarkably easy to follow."
––Gerald McGrath, GEOMATICA Vol. 67, No. 1, 2013
