Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors presented a version of the Land Transformation Model (LTM) parameterized for Michigan's Grand Traverse Bay Watershed and explored how factors such as roads, highways, residential streets, rivers, Great Lakes coastlines, recreational facilities, inland lakes, agricultural density, and quality of views can influence urbanization patterns in this coastal watershed.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The SLEUTH model is a cellular automaton model with predefined growth rules applied spatially to gridded maps of the cities in a set of nested loops, and was designed to be both scaleable and universally applicable as discussed by the authors.

468 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors combined expert systems and geographical information systems technologies to help with an implementation of a land suitability evaluation model. The result is the LEIGIS software, which allows empirical work within the framework of this paper.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: Geographical kernel weighting is proposed as a method for deriving local summary statistics from geographically weighted point data as discussed by the authors, which are then used to visualise geographical variation in the statistical distribution of variables of interest.

189 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A typology encompassing the most popular techniques for visual presentation is set out, and, using a common GIS database, a number of different visualisation software packages are assessed.

117 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the accuracy of several areal interpolation techniques suitable for use with historical data are compared using synthetic districts and parishes created from Enumeration District-level data from the 1991 census.

109 citations


Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: GeoVISTA Studio as mentioned in this paper is a Java-based visual programming environment that allows for the rapid development of complex data exploration and knowledge construction applications to support geographic analysis, leveraging advances in geocomputation, software engineering, visualization and machine learning.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a GIS and remote sensing based approach is followed to produce different scale vegetation maps for a study area in the Western Alps (Switzerland) using contingency tables and principal components analysis the overall influence of topography and landform on vegetation distribution was analyzed.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors analyse the developments that might occur in a society with respect to tenure, value and use of land, and they recommend taking into account both the static and dynamic component when designing land administration systems.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: This work contrasts AUTOCLUST with algorithms for clustering large georeferenced sets of points, and compares them with each other to confirm the virtues of the approach.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present a review of nine publications on cadastre and identify the methodologies used, focusing on the institutional, social, political and economic aspects of cadastral development, rather than on the technical aspects.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a GIS-based environmental modelling system, termed TRAEMS, is described for use by transport planners in assessing the environmental effects of road traffic plans, which enables planners to test transport related environmental impacts at the same time as they are testing the traffic carrying efficiencies of network plans.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: APNEE will provide an enabling technology to implement European directives and national legislation for online dissemination of air quality information and study the feasibility of different broadcasting methods.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors proposed a hierarchical spatial reasoning (HSR) based approach for the automated delineation of boundaries in a GIS-based algorithm for spatial data sets.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A first overview of the chosen goals and strategies is presented, aimed at establishing the means for an expansion of markets for geographically related information products and services in Northrhine-Westphalia.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A new method for generating a spatially accurate, legally supportive and operationally efficient cadastral database of the urban Cadastral reality is described, based on an analytical reconstruction of cadastrals boundaries rather than on the conventional field reconstruction process.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors introduce the General Regression Neural Network (GRNN) to a general geography audience as a powerful tool to use in place of OLS for function approximation with geographic data.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, a method for re-estimating the migration and commuting data collected in the 1981 British census for the new geography used at the time of the 1991 British census is presented.

Journal ArticleDOI
M. Morad1
TL;DR: The role of British Standard 7666 in the development of a national framework for geocoding land and property information in the United Kingdom is examined in this paper, where the author assesses how local authorities, and other agencies concerned with property and address datasets, are coping with the introduction of British standard 7666, and examines the prospects and limitations of this development.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A “thin client” approach is used to allow the final service to be accessible, both in terms of delivery speeds and user interface, to the maximum number of “non-geospatially aware” users.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, a nonparametric bidimensional regression (Tobler, 1994, Geographical Analysis, 26 186-212) is used to investigate patterns of distortion in seven maps of the county (Saxton: 1575, Jansson: 1646, Blome: 1673, Overton: 1713, Harrison: 1790, Rowe: 1831 and Wyld: 1891).

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The Hipparchus system developed by Hrvoje Lukatela of Calgary, Alberta (Lukatela 1987) as mentioned in this paper uses latitude and longitude for its coordinate system but does not treat the spherical units as their primary referencing system.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In order to develop a formal model comprising representations of the cadastre and of reality that allows the simulation and investigation of cases where this correspondence is potentially violated, the foundation for the formalization is a modern version of the situation calculus.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: A method for automatic relief representation required in order to visualise archaeological monuments within a GIS, which takes as input the isolines defining the top and bottom of the slope and populates the region with hachures whilst addressing a comprehensive set of design issues.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the registration of title supported by government guarantee is proposed as an effective means of rapidly introducing cadastral systems to facilitate globally competitive land markets in developing countries, and the need to completely re-engineer and redesign cadastrals to meet basic Cadastral principles and responsiveness to individual user needs is promoted.



Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors developed the elaboration process of the Brussels UrbIS© data dictionary and presented the experience gained in the field of urban data management from a practical study.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: The Urban Regeneration and the Environment Programme (URGENT) as discussed by the authors is a wide-ranging research programme concerned with the restoration and regeneration of urban conurbations in the UK. Its aim is to integrate urban ecological and environmental research across the geological, terrestrial, freshwater and atmospheric sciences.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this article, the authors investigated the design of a process for parcel boundary identification with cadastral map overlay using the principle of least squares and provided an objective tool for boundary identification survey.
