Spatial Databases: Technologies, Techniques and Trends

Buy
Spatial database systems has been an active area of research over the past 20 years. A large number of research efforts have appeared in literature aimed at effective modelling of spatial data and efficient processing of spatial queries. This book investigates several aspects of a spatial database system, and includes recent research efforts in this field. More specifically, some of the topics covered are: spatial data modelling; indexing of spatial and spatio-temporal objects; data mining and knowledge discovery in spatial and spatio-temporal databases; management issues; and query processing for moving objects. Therefore, the reader will be able to get in touch with several important issues that the research community is dealing with. Moreover, each chapter is self-contained, and it is easy for the non-specialist to grasp the main issues.

The authors of the book’s chapters are well-known researchers in spatial databases, and have offered significant contributions to spatial database literature. The chapters of this book provide an in-depth study of current technologies, techniques and trends in spatial and spatio-temporal database systems research. Each chapter has been carefully prepared by the contributing authors, in order to conform with the book’s requirements.

The book is composed of 13 chapters, organized in five major sections according to the research issue covered:
  • Modelling and Systems
  • Indexing Techniques
  • Query Processing and Optimization
  • Moving Objects
  • Data Mining
About the Author
Yannis Manolopoulos was born in Thessaloniki, Greece in 1957. He received his 5-year Diploma degree in Electrical Engineering degree and his PhD degree from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 1981 and 1986 respectively. He has been with the Department of Computer Science of the University of Toronto, the Department of Computer Science of the University of Maryland at College Park and the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Aristotle University. Currently he is a Professor at the Department of Informatics of Aristotle University. He has published over 100 papers in refereed scientific journals and conference proceedings. He is author of two textbooks on data/file structures, which are recommended in the vast majority of the computer science/engineering departments in Greece. He has served as PC member in a number of conferences such as SIGMOD, EDBT, SSD, ADBIS and ACM-GIS, whereas currently he is member of the Editorial Board of The Computer Journal. His research interests include spatiotemporal databases, databases for the web, data mining, data/file structures and algorithms and performance evaluation of secondary and tertiary storage systems.

Convex Optimization with Computational Errors (Springer Optimization and Its Applications)
The book is devoted to the study of approximate solutions of optimization problems in the presence of computational errors. It contains a number of results on the convergence behavior of algorithms in a Hilbert space, which are known as important tools for solving optimization problems. The research presented in the book is the continuation...
GIS, Environmental Modeling and Engineering, Second Edition
GIS, Environmental Modeling and Engineering, Second Edition

Spatial dimensions need to be properly captured if modeling and engineering techniques are to be successfully applied in addressing environmental problems. The links between the geographical information systems (GIS) that capture this data, simulation modeling, and engineering offer tremendous possibilities for building versatile support...
