Description

The intersection of two disciplines and technologies which became mature academic research topics in the 1990s was destined to become a dynamic area for collaboration and publication. However, until now, no significant book-length treatment of the meeting of GIS and Virtual Reality has been available. This volume puts that situation to rights by bringing these together to cement some common understanding and principles in a potentially promising area for technological collaboration and cross fertilisation.The result is a volume which ranges in subject matter from studies of a virtual GIS room to Spatial Agents, and from an Environmental Multimedia System to Computer-Assisted 3D Geographic Education.All of the Contributors are well known international scientists, principally from the computational side of GIS.It will be a valuable resource for any GIS researcher or professional looking to understand the leading edge of this fertile field.show more

Table of contents

The intersection of two disciplines and technologies which have become mature academic research topics in the 1990s was destined to be a dynamic area for collaboration and publication. However, until now no significant book-length treatment of the meeting of GIS and Virtual Reality has been available. This volume puts that situation to rights by bringing these together to cement some common understanding and principles in a potentially highly promising area for technological collaboration and cross-fertilisation.The result is a volume which ranges in subject matter from studies of a Virtual GIS Room to Spatial Agents, and from an Environmental Multimedia System to Computer-Assisted 3D Geographic Education. All the contributors are well-known international scientists, principally from the computational side of GIS. It will be a valuable resource for any GIS researcher or professional looking to understand the leading edge of this fertile field.show more
