Advanced work on GIS applications in such fields as urban planning, transportation, and economic development

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.

Paul A. Longley is a professor of geographic information science at University College, London, and acts as the deputy director of CASA. He was previously a professor of geography at the University of Bristol and has also worked at the universities of Cardiff, Reading, and Karlsruhe. He has a Ph.D. from the University of Bristol, and his research is focused on the principles and techniques of geographic information science with research applications in urban remote sensing, urban morphological analysis, and geodemographics. Michael Batty is the director of CASA and a professor of spatial analysis and planning at University College, London. He was previously director of the State University of New York at Buffalo site of the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (NCGIA) and was a professor and head of the department of city and regional planning at the University of Wales at Cardiff.
