Geocomputation may be viewed as the application of a computational science paradigm to study a wide range of problems in geographical systems contexts.
This volume presents a clear, comprehensive and thoroughly state-of-the-art overview of current research, written by leading figures in the field.
It provides important insights into this new and rapidly developing field and attempts to establish the principles, and to develop techniques for solving real world problems in a wide array of application domains with a catalyst to greater understanding of what geocomputation is and what it entails.
The broad coverage makes it invaluable reading for resarchers and professionals in geography, environmental and economic sciences as well as for graduate students of spatial science and computer science.
Illustrates some recent developments in the field of geocomputational modelling and aims to disseminate recent research into graduate classroomsEstablishes general principles and builds solid foundations for further research and subsequent growth in geocomputational modellingProvides illustrations of geocomputational modelling in remote sensing as well as in regional science
