Spatial Databases : a Tour (03 Edition) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This inter-disciplinary comprehensive text shows how to manage spatial data in GIS, CAD, and multimedia systems and their application domains. This book helps readers master various stages of traditional spatial database design and implementation, introducing conceptual models (e.g. pictogram-enhanced ERD), explaining query languages (e.g. OGIS, SQL3), and finally describing efficient implementations using query optimization algorithms as well as spatial storage and indexing methods (e.g. R-trees). For students or professionals, this book balances cutting-edge research and practice to provide many firsts.

OUTSTANDING FEATURES

  • Comprehensive yet concise overview of Spatial Databases for students and practitioners.
  • Self-contained treatment without assuming pre-requisite knowledge of GIS or Databases.
  • Extensive use of industry standards, such as OGIS spatial data types and operations.
  • Complete coverage of spatial networks including modeling, querying and storage methods.
  • Detailed discussion of issues related to Spatial Data Mining.
  • Balance between cutting-edge research and commercial trends.
  • Variety of exercises at the end of each chapter.
  • Easy-to-understand examples from common knowledge application-domains.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for a graduate course on scientific databases for students of computer science and other disciplines. Looking beyond what has now become traditional geographical information systems, it surveys spatial database management systems, emphasizing the object-relational framework that is becoming a clear trend in commercial applications.
