Applying OOAD in the design and implementation of an intelligent geographic information system
In this chapter we presented our experience in applying the Responsibility-Driven Approach to the design and implementation of a complex, real-life geographic application. The approach's emphasis on identifying and designing object-classes based on responsibilities rather than their characteristics proved to be very effective in achieving a robust design and implementation that is close to user requirement and at the same time enhancing the application's extensibility and maintainability.
Future work includes investigating the applicability of our geographic model to a varied set of problem domains such as electoral districting and public utilities management.
