Mining Spatio-Temporal Information Systems (Kluwer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science, 699)
Roy Ladner, Kevin Shaw, Mahdi AbdelguerfiISBN: 1402071701;
We are facing a rapidly growing capability to collect more and more data regarding our environment. With that, we must have the ability to extract more insightful knowledge about the environmental processes at work on the earth. Spatio-Temporal Information Systems (STIS) will especially prove beneficial in producing useful knowledge about changes in our world from these ever burgeoning collections of environment data. STIS provide the ability to store, analyze and represent the dynamic properties of the environment, that is, geographic information in space and time. An STIS, for example, can produce a weather map, but more importantly, it can present a user with information in map or report form indicating how precipitation progresses in space over time to affect a watershed. Other uses include forestry and even electrical systems management. Forestry experts using an STIS are able to examine the rates of movements of forest fires, how they evolve over time, and their impact on forest...
