Modeling of Search Actions Under the Conditions of Variable Environment Properties

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


As a rule, modeling and evaluation of search action efficiency is made using the theory of search. Constraints and assumptions of the specified theory provide for an application of analytical models that assume an invariance of properties for modeling objects. However, application of such models to single situations of search causes essential errors due to insufficient adequacy of the mathematical model for real-life search situation. This is typical for an object search under a variability of environment properties affecting observer possibilities as well as possibilities for the observation object. Such problem solving is connected with applications of geospatial data that reflect the environment properties. In this chapter, the problem of search efficiency evaluation under variable water environment properties is addressed the necessity for geographic information system (GIS) application to modeling is substantiated, the role and importance of GIS are considered, an ontology of search operation is specified, and modeling results are described.
