Scale in Spatial Information and Analysis

Jingxiong Zhang, Peter Atkinson, Michael F. Goodchild
April 06, 2017

Now ubiquitous in modern life, spatial data present great opportunities to transform many of the processes on which we base our everyday lives. However, not only do these data depend on the scale of measurement, but also handling these data (e.g., to make suitable maps) requires that we account for...
