While spatial facts is digitized to be used in geographic info structures and different software program, information regarding its unique scale, solution and accuracy is often misplaced. therefore, utilizing such info at various scales and mixing it with info from different resources should be tricky. Mapping vector info at smaller than the unique scale calls for its generalization, that's often dealt with by means of post-processing in ways in which are just weakly supported by means of databases. The types and techniques defined during this ebook triumph over many such difficulties through supplying a multi-resolution information illustration that enables retrieval of map facts at a hierarchy of scales, in addition to documenting the accuracy of each spatial coordinate.

Example text

These elevations would then be assigned to the corresponding GEM vertices in the triangulation defining that level of detail. As GEM's triangulation is fixed and regular, these locations can be generated in parallel to their elevations; being implicit, they do not need to be recorded in a database. Finally, if being retrieved for visualization, the geographic coordinates and elevations would be projected directly or indirectly into display space. For other purposes, a 3D triangular mesh could be generated, and if required, contours and other lines could be threaded through this regular structure.

Each of the 32 facets in this model is treated as flat, and all locations within it projected from geographic coordinates to planar ones using a Lambert conic equal area projection that varies distances between sampling points by less than two percent (White et al 1992). Within any primary EMAP hexagonal or pentagonal plate, various tessellations provide equal-area sampling units across a range of scales. Triangular, rhombic and hexagonal grids may all be utilized, depending on the type of resources and stressors to be monitored and the desired sampling density.

Instead of documenting all database objects, positional error can be mapped down through the object hierarchy to particular coordinates Quadtree [ Addresses [ [eoOa'a)I Storing coordinates as quadtree addresses sorts this all out and builds in oositional metadata Fig. 5, and is described in subsequent chapters. The author believes strongly that this approach provides a much more effective way to embed positional metadata into GIS databases, putting it where it is most useful; at the spatial coordinate level.
