Maritime GIS: From Monitoring to Simulation Systems
Combined research in the fields of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and maritime systems has finally reached the point where paths should overlap and continue in better unison. This paper introduces methodological and experimental results of several marine-related GIS projects whose objectives are to develop spatial data models and computing architectures that favour the development of monitoring and decision-aid systems. The computing architectures developed integrate agent-based reasoning and distributed systems for the real-time monitoring, manipulation and simulation of maritime transportation systems.
