Paper Abstract

One of the most challenging issues in today's world of geographic analysis and scene simulation is not the technology for analyzing or displaying the geographic data, but instead, the technology for deriving the databases that would support such functions in various regions of the world where detailed source material may not exist. The processing of spatial data has become commonplace due to the existence of low cost computer systems and the availability of spatial analysis software. Whereas, one was once only able to find true geographic analysis in research institutes and large architecture/engineering firms, now commercially available Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are being used by cities and local government, small business planning firms, state and regional government, and throughout a myriad of federal government entities including the military. College coursework in a number of disciplines now involves the modeling or analyses of spatial data on small computer systems.
