Evolutionary models (e.g., genetic algorithms, artificial life), explored in other fields for the past two decades, are now emerging as an important new tool in GIS for a number of reasons. First, they are highly appropriate for modeling geographic phenomena. Secondly, geographical problemsare often spatially separate (broken down into local or regional problems) and evolutionary algorithms can exploit this structure. Finally, the ability to store, manipulate, and visualize spatial data has increased to the point that space-time-attribute databases can be easily handled.
Jonathan Raper is at City University of London.

Editorial Reviews

Clearly written and cutting edge, this book will appeal not only to GIS practitioners and researchers, but also to other professionals confronted by spatial problems. It may also serve as a primary textbook for college-level courses in GIS, advanced spatial modeling method and informationengineering, or as a supplementary textbook for computer science courses.
