- Full Description
The Geospatial Web will have a profound impact on managing knowledge & structuring workflows within and across organizations, & on the interaction between those organizations & their target audience. This volume emphasizes the applications & implications of the Geospatial Web & the role of contextual knowledge in shaping the emerging network society. This book summarizes the latest research on the Geospatial Web’s technical foundations, describes information services & collaborative tools built on top of geo-browsers, & investigates the economic & societal impacts of geospatial applications. The role of contextual knowledge in shaping the emerging network society deserves particular attention. By integrating geospatial & semantic technology, such contextual knowledge can be extracted automatically – for example, when processing Web documents to provide automated news services. Containing chapters from renown researchers & practitioners, this volume will be invaluable to all interested in this field.
