  1. Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis

    By Jingxiong Zhang, Peter Atkinson, Michael Goodchild

    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...
