Description & Coverage
Description:

Geographic data is a valuable source of information in modern society. By utilizing alternative sources of this data, the availability and potential applications of geographic information systems can be increased.

Volunteered Geographic Information and the Future of Geospatial Data is a pivotal reference source for the latest scholarly research on information gathering from volunteers, as opposed to official agencies and private companies, to compile geospatial data. Highlighting a range of pertinent topics such as regional landscape mapping, road safety, and land usage, this book is ideally designed for researchers, academics, students, professionals, and practitioners interested in the growing area of volunteered geographic information.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Digital Rights Management
  • Disaster planning
  • Educational Planning
  • Land Usage
  • Quality Evaluation and Assessment
  • Regional Landscape Mapping
  • Road Safety
