Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Some of the contributors are from the geographical sciences, but most describe how they use spatial data infrastructure for research in other social sciences, including law, management, and sociology. They focus on non-technical aspects, expanding the theoretical base, introducing a range of methods, and incorporating empirical investigation and evidence with pragmatic implications. Readers are expected to be familiar with the tool itself and its features. The topics include institutional obstacles in implementing a land administration system in a developing country, coordinating between redundancy and efficiency in Uganda, the social network analysis of the spatial data infrastructure in Flanders, and enlisting spatial data infrastructure in the local practices of slum declaration as part of urban planning in India.

It examines the complexities involved in the establishments of SDIs in the Northern and Southern hemispheres and use of SDIs in a variety of cultural, societal, and institutional contexts. The focus is on urban and regional levels where socio-economic and environmental sustainability is realized.
