Neuware - Trustonlymovement. Life happens at the level of events not of words. Trust movement. A. Adler As its title suggests,the main goal of this book is the development of advanced fu- tions for field-based Temporal Geographical Information Systems (TGIS).These fields may describe a variety of natural, epidemiological, economical, and social phen- ena distributed across space and time.Within such a framework,the book makes an attempt to establish links between, (a) the currently conceived TGIS techniques, and (b) the Bayesian maximum entropy (BME) techniques of Modern Spatiotemporal G- statistics.This link could be vital for offering significant improvements in the advanced functions of TGIS analysis and modelling, as well as generating useful information in a variety of real-world decision making and planning situations. To achieve the above goals, the eight Chapters of the book are organized around four main themes: Concepts, mathematical tools, computer programs, and applications. In fact, the focus is mainly on the step-by-step implementation of the compu- tional BME approach and the extensive use of illustrative examples and real-world applications.Indeed,because of the applied character of the present book,no detailed theoretical explanations or mathematical derivations are included.Instead,the reader is referred to the earlier book by Christakos (Modern Spatiotemporal Geostatistics, Oxford Univ.Press,New York, N.Y., 2000) for a comprehensive presentation of these BME aspects.With this in mind, the chapter-by-chapter organization of the book is described next. 219 pp. Englisch.

Synopsis: The book focuses on the development of advanced functions for field-based Temporal Geographical Information Systems (TGIS). These fields describe natural, epidemiological, economic, and social phenomena distributed across space and time. The book is organized around 4 main themes: concepts, mathematical tools, computer programs, and applications.The reader is also familiarized with the TGIS toolbox of advanced functions and the associated library of comprehensive computer programs, BMElib.A CD-ROM is included with the book, so that the reader can readily use the computerized advanced TGIS functions of the BMElib to reconstruct many of the numerical applications discussed in the book. TOC:From the contents: 1. A BME View to the New Realities of TGIS.- 2. Spatiotemporal Modelling.- 3. Knowledge Bases Integration.- 4. Spatiotemporal Mapping.- 5. Interpretive BME.- 6. The BME Toolbox in Action.- 7. The BME Computer Library.- 8. Scientific Hypothesis Testing, Explanation, and Decision Making.
