商品描述

Spatial Databases covers all of the major themes of the field -- representation,  
query languages, computational geometry, spatial indexing -- using geographic  
information systems as the principal application domain and motivation. It will make  
an excellent introduction for computer science professionals and students interested  
in exploring GIS, or for GIS professionals interested in learning more about the  
computer science foundations of the field. The book is also an excellent guide to the  
literature, with comprehensive bibliographic notes at the end of each chapter.

Spatial Databases is the first unified and in-depth treatment of special techniques  
for dealing with spatial data. Organized to focus on the specific features of spatial  
data that are not adequately handled by mainstream DBMS technology, this book  
surveys the various low-level techniques developed to address these problems,  
including spatial data models, algorithms, scales, and indexing methods, and takes  
an in-depth look at today's most prominent GIS products.
