GeoComputation (2nd Ed)
by Robert J. Abrahart and Linda M. See
CRC Press | June 2014 | ISBN-10: 1466503289 | PDF | 475 pages | 22.7 mb
A revision of Openshaw and Abrahart’s seminal work, GeoComputation, Second Edition retains influences of its originators while also providing updated, state-of-the-art information on changes in the computational environment. In keeping with the field’s development, this new edition takes a broader view and provides comprehensive coverage across the field of GeoComputation.
See What’s New in the Second Edition:
- Coverage of ubiquitous computing, the GeoWeb, reproducible research, open access, and agent-based modelling
- Expanded chapter on Genetic Programming and a separate chapter developed on Evolutionary Algorithms
- Ten chapters updated by the same or new authors and eight new chapters added to reflect state of the art
Each chapter is a stand-alone entity that covers a particular topic. You can simply dip in and out or read it from cover to cover. The opening chapter by Stan Openshaw has been preserved, with only a limited number of minor essential modifications having been enacted. This is not just a matter of respect. Openshaw’s work is eloquent, prophetic, and his overall message remains largely unchanged.
In contrast to other books on this subject, GeoComputation: Second Edition supplies a state-of-the-art review of all major areas in GeoComputation with chapters written especially for this book by invited specialists. This approach helps develop and expand a computational culture, one that can exploit the ever-increasing richness of modern geographical and geospatial datasets. It also supplies an instructional guide to be kept within easy reach for regular access and when need arises.
