Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through the results of a developed case study of information system for low temperature geothermal energy, GIS to Support Cost-effective Decisions on Renewable Sources addresses the issue of the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in evaluating cost-effectiveness of renewable resource exploitation regional scale. Focusing on the design of a Decision Support System, a process is presented aimed to transform geographic data into knowledge useful for analysis and decision-making on the economic exploitation of geothermal energy. This detailed description includes a literature review and technical issues related to data collection, data mining, decision analysis for the informative system developed for the case study. A multi-disciplinary approach to GIS design is presented which is also an innovative example of fusion of georeferenced data acquired from multiple sources including remote sensing, networks of sensors and socio-economic censuses. GIS to Support Cost-effective Decisions on Renewable Sources is a pratical reference for engineers, managers and researchers involved in the design of GIS, decision support systems, investment planning/strategy in renewable energy and ICT innovation in this field.

Synopsis:

This book addresses the use of Geographic Information Systems to help evaluate cost-effectiveness of renewable resource exploitation. Offers a process to adapt geographic data for analysis and decision-making in the economic exploitation of geothermal energy.

About the Author

Alberto Gemelli received the PhD and B.Eng. in Computer Engineering at the Polytechnic University of Marche and a MSc Geology at the Catania University. His main research interests are on applications of geographic information systems to renewable energy, economic geography and spatial data mining. In these areas he had professional assignments with several years work experience in geophysical data processing. Adriano Mancini holds a Post-doctor position at the Information Engineering Department of Polytechnic University of Marche.
