Spatial data is essential in a wide range of application domains today. While geographical applications remain the key target area, spatial properties are required in other contexts such as computer-aided design, robotics and image processing. Associated with these is the constantly growing number of distributed processing architectures, based on, for example, grid systems, sensor data networks, and personalized smart devices.

Spatial Data on the Web links these two research streams, focusing on the modeling and management of spatial data in distributed systems. Belussi and his coeditors have structured the contributions from internationally renowned researchers into four parts. Part I presents models for representing semistructured, multiresolution and multiscale data; Part II deals with the integration of spatial data sources; Part III describes approaches to spatial data protection; and, finally, Part IV reports innovative applications for mobile devices. The book offers researchers in academia and industry an excellent overview of the state of the art in modeling and management of spatial data in distributed environments, while it may also be the basis of specialized courses on Web-based geographical information systems.

Alberto Belussi is associate professor at the Computer Science Department of the University of Verona, Italy. He graduated in Electronic Engineering (with specialization in Computer Science) at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 1992 and he received the Ph.D in Computer Science and Automatic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano (Italy) i...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"More than 30 contributors from Australia, Europe and the USA . cover a range of technical issues in these areas and provide a thoughtful, informative exposition on the conceptual and theoretical aspects of putting spatial data on the web. . this volume makes a valuable contribution to the subject of web-enabled spatial data that should prove valuable to research and students at an advanced stage of their studies on GIS programmes. Each chapter includes its own list of references . ." (Nigel Walford, Area Royal Geographical Society, Vol. 41 (1), 2009)
