"Describing the latest developments in GIS applications at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis (CASA) at the University College, London, this book demonstrates how CASA is advancing spatial decision systems and spatial analysis, which are essential to solving problems and better understanding how people live. How these systems and analyses are drawn from archaeology, architecture, cartography, computer science, environmental science, geography, planning, remote sensing, geomatic engineering, and transport studies is explained. Highlighted are projects such as Digital Egypt, which describes virtual reality reconstructions for Egyptian archaeological finds, and Virtual cities, which explores the concepts and nature of virtual cities, from early CAD models to the newly emerging data-rich cities that merge GIS with three-dimensional visualization."
