Overview

Spatial Information Theory: A Theoretical Basis for GIS. European Conference, COSIT'93, Marciana Marina, Elba Island, Italy, September 19-22, 1993. Proceedings by Andrew U. Frank

This volume collects the papers presented at the European
Conference on Spatial Information Theory (COSIT '93) held on the island of Elba, Italy, inSeptember 1993. Spatial information theory includes disciplinary topics and interdisciplinary issues dealing with the conceptualization and formalization of large-scale (geographic) space. It contributes towards a consistent theoretical basis for
Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
Geographic information systems are widely used in administration,planning, and science in many different countries, and for a wide variety ofapplications. Research results which relevant for GIS are distributed between many disciplines and contacts between researchers have been limited. At the same time, the development of GIS has been hinderedby the lack of a sound theoretical base. This conference was intended to help remedies these problems.
