Representations of Space and Time
This book examines how geospatial knowledge can be analyzed and represented in a manner that not only is accurate and coherent, but also makes intuitive sense to the end user. Integrating concepts and approaches from geography, computer science, cognitive psychology, and philosophy, the author explores the processes by which people acquire, represent, and utilize spatiotemporal knowledge.
