Intelligent GIS Conceptualization

Part of the Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography book series (LNGC)


The concept of an intelligent geographic information system (IGIS) is not new. However, the term represents a complex set of ideas and methods that cannot be combined into one method, theory, or concept. This chapter attempts to describe this new domain in geographic information system science and technology. Here, we present selected results of theoretical investigations and technological developments to share the vision of IGIS.
