|Geographic Information Analysis for Sustainable Development and Economic Planning: New Technologies
Giuseppe Borruso, Stefania Bertazzon, Andrea Favretto, Beniamino Murgante, Carmelo Maria Torre.
Spatial analytical techniques and geographical analysis and modelling methods are required in order to analyse data and to facilitate the decision process at all levels. Old geographical issues can find an answer thanks to new methods and instruments, while new issues are developing, challenging the...
Emerging Methods and Multidisciplinary Applications in Geospatial Research
Donald P. Albert, G. Rebecca Dobbs.
We need to understand how to utilize Geospatial Research in order to help us solve problems in environmental, life science, and defense industries, as well as intelligence, natural resources, medical and public safety industries. Emerging Methods and Multidisciplinary Applications in Geospatial...
Geographic Information Systems: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications
Information Resources Management Association.
Developments in technologies have evolved in a much wider use of technology throughout science, government, and business; resulting in the expansion of geographic information systems. GIS is the academic study and practice of presenting geographical data through a system designed to capture, store...

Jason Underwood, Sisi Zlatanova, Umit Isikdag.
The International Journal of 3-D Information Modeling (IJ3DIM) focuses on three research domains, Building Information Modeling, 3D GIS, and integration of 3D information in the Urban Built Environment. IJ3DIM facilitates the exchange of current scientific information, as well as sharing of...
Geospatial Technologies and Advancing Geographic Decision Making: Issues and Trends
Donald P. Albert.
The availability of geographically referenced data, the proliferation of geospatial technologies, and advances in spatial analytics have been a boom to applied geographers. Geospatial Technologies and Advancing Geographic Decision Making: Issues and Trends is a resource for private and public sector...
Universal Ontology of Geographic Space: Semantic Enrichment for Spatial Data
Tomaž Podobnikar, Marjan Ceh.
A universal approach to the ontology of geographic space has already been, and is going to be, a comprehensive task for establishing more effective spatial models. The concept of a universal spatial ontology should be independent of location, culture, and time. It should be fundamental and universal in...
Qualitative Spatio-Temporal Representation and Reasoning: Trends and Future Directions
Shyamanta M. Hazarika.
Space and time are inextricably linked. Reasoning about space often involves reasoning about change in spatial configurations. Qualitative spatial information theory encompasses spatial as well as temporal representation and reasoning. Qualitative Spatio-Temporal Representation and Reasoning: Trends...

Donald Patrick Albert (email@example.com).
The International Journal of Applied Geospatial Research (IJAGR) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal specializing in studies from applied geography that interface with geographic information science and technology. Including both regular and special themed issues, this journal presents policy...
Location Patterns of Section 8 Housing in Jefferson County, Kentucky
Wei Song, Karl Keeling.
The controversial Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program is the largest federal low-income housing program. Using GIS-based spatial clustering analysis (Getis–Ord’s Gi statistic) and multiple linear regressions, in this paper, the authors examine the locational patterns of more than 13,600 Section 8...
Emerging Retail Strategies in Urban Canada
Tony Hernandez, Magnus Svindal.
In this article, the authors examine the spatial distribution of major retail chains across Canada. Using store location data for 2001 and 2006, the geospatial approach adopted in this study allows for the analysis of retail chains’ store portfolios by the size of the resident population of the...
Changing Retail Banking Supply-Demand Mismatch: A Tale of Two States
In this study, the author compares the supply-demand mismatch of retail banking services and the changing patterns in Illinois and New York from 1982 to 2007 amid fundamental banking transformation and geographical deregulation. The study uses measures of concentration like the Herfindahl-Herschman...
From Beats to Tracts: A Remote Sensing Approach to the Interpolation of Crime Data
In this article, the author addresses the spatial incompatibility between different types of data that is commonly faced in crime analysis research. Socioeconomic variables have been proved valuable in explaining crime behaviors and in predicting crime activities. However, socioeconomic data and crime...
