Overview

The use of geosensors, including GPS receivers, micro-sensors, and still and video cameras, has steadily increased, and so a new paradigm for geocomputation is required. Sensor-Based Distribution Geocomputing addresses the collection, analysis, management and delivery of geospatial data using distributed geosensors. This data is collected from multiple sources in a broad geographic area and then disseminated to multiple users. Noted experts discuss mobile and wireless computing, location-based services and products, spatiotemporal analysis, VR modeling, computer vision and real-time databases. This text is indispensable for researchers and professionals in the geospatial community.
