The Accuracy of spatial databases by Michael F Goodchild( Book )

25 editions published between 1989 and 2003 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the first collection of papers to address the problem of accuracy in spatial databases, and comprises papers drawn from a wide range of physical and human systems, taking approaches which vary from statistical to descriptive. Together they present both a comprehensive review of existing knowledge, techniques and experience, and an analysis of critical research needs in this area of spatial data handling. The papers selected in this book were originally presented in December 1988 in Montecito, California, at a meeting convened by the new US National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (NCGIA), as the first of a series of initiatives to lay out a detailed agenda for activity in key problem areas in GIS
Crowdsourcing geographic knowledge : volunteered geographic information (VGI) in theory and practice by Daniel Z Sui( )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The phenomenon of volunteered geographic information is part of a profound transformation in how geographic data, information, and knowledge are produced and circulated. By situating volunteered geographic information (VGI) in the context of big-data deluge and the data-intensive inquiry, the 20 chapters in this book explore both the theories and applications of crowdsourcing for geographic knowledge production with three sections focusing on 1). VGI, Public Participation, and Citizen Science; 2). Geographic Knowledge Production and Place Inference; and 3). Emerging Applications and New Challenges. This book argues that future progress in VGI research depends in large part on building strong linkages with diverse geographic scholarship. Contributors of this volume situate VGI research in geography's core concerns with space and place, and offer several ways of addressing persistent challenges of quality assurance in VGI. This book positions VGI as part of a shift toward hybrid epistemologies, and potentially a fourth paradigm of data-intensive inquiry across the sciences. It also considers the implications of VGI and the exaflood for further time-space compression and new forms, degrees of digital inequality, the renewed importance of geography, and the role of crowdsourcing for geographic knowledge production"--Provided by publisher

Spatial data quality by Wenzhong Shi( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2019 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As research in the geosciences and social sciences becomes increasingly dependent on computers, applications such as geographical information systems are becoming indispensable tools. But the digital representations of phenomena that these systems require are often of poor quality, leading to inaccurate results, uncertainty, error propagation, and potentially legal liability. Spatial data quality has become an essential research topic within geographical information science. This book covers many of the cutting-edge research issues related to spatial data quality, including measurement in GIS and geostatistics, the modeling of spatial objects that have inherent uncertainty, spatial data quality control, quality management, communicating uncertainty and resolution, reasoning and decision-making, visualization of uncertainty and error metadata. It will be of interest to anyone undertaking research using GIS and related technologies

Scale in spatial information and analysis by Jingxiong Zhang( )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now ubiquitous in modern life, spatial data present great opportunities to transform many of the processes on which we base our everyday lives. However, not only do these data depend on the scale of measurement, but also handling these data (e.g., to make suitable maps) requires that we account for the scale of measurement explicitly. Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis describes the scales of measurement and scales of spatial variation that exist in the measured data. It provides you with a series of tools for handling spatial data while accounting for scale. The authors
