Description

The geospatial technology field is a fast-paced, high growth industry that is involved in a variety of fields, including military planning, public health, land use, environmental protection, and Google Earth mapping. With such a diverse body of applications, the research in geospatial technologies is always evolving and new theories, methodologies, tools, and applications are being developed. Advances in Geospatial Technologies (AGT) Book Series is a reference source and outlet for research that discusses all aspects of geographic information, including areas such as geomatics, geodesy, GIS, cartography, remote sensing, and other areas. Because geospatial technologies are so pervasive in such a variety of areas, AGT also includes books that address interdisciplinary applications of the technologies.
