This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the International Co nference on Spatial Information Theory, COSIT '99, held in Stade, Germ any, in August 1999. The 30 revised full papers presented were careful ly reviewed and selected from 70 submissions. The book is divided into topical sections on landmarks and navigation, route directions, abstr action and spatial hierarchies, spatial reasoning calculi, ontology of space, visual representation and reasoning, maps and routes, and gran ularity and qualitative abstraction.
