Description

This book describes geospatial computing from a software engineering perspective. It provides theoretical background, practical recommendations, and examples for individuals who need to write software that processes spatial information: remote sensing image analysis software, geographic information systems software, location based services, spatially-oriented simulations and related applications. It considers data structures and algorithms commonly used in geoinformatics, and highlights where relevant the particular challenges of geographic computing. It includes a major section on applying parallel architectures to problems in geoinformatics.
