About this book

This book contains a selection of papers from the 16th International Symposium on Spatial Data Handling (SDH), the premier long-running forum in geographical information science. This collection offers readers exemplary contributions to geospatial scholarship and practice from the conference's 30th anniversary.

About the authors

Francis Harvey has held academic positions at the University of Leicester, Jagiellonian University in Kraków, the Technical University of Warsaw, the École Polytechnique de Lausanne, University of Kentucky and currently the University of Minnesota. His work takes up fundamental questions in geography, cartography and GI Science connected to semantics, visualization and spatial technological design, implementation and use.

Leung Yee’s research focuses on uncertainty analysis in general and imprecision analysis in particular and is broadly classified into three main areas: analysis of Uncertain Spatial Phenomena and Processes, Geographical Information Systems and Intelligent Spatial Decision Support Systems and Spatial Analysis and Spatial Data Mining. He is currently based at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
