    In geographic data information granulation is a central aspect of observation or abstract representation of geographic entities. The representation of space and spatial relationships in terms of idealized abstraction of geometric primitives (e.g., polygons, lines and points or pixels) and topological constraints inherently presupposes granulation of the space-time : Iftikhar U. Sikder.

Other tests, however, provide preliminary evidence for the existence of important differences in subjects’ categorizations of geographic and non-geographic objects, and suggest further experimental work especially with regard to the role in cognitive categorization of different types of object-boundaries at different by: Modeling vague objects with indeterminate boundaries has drawn much attention in geographic information science.

Because fields and objects are two perspectives in modeling geographic phenomena, this paper investigates the characteristics of vague regions from the perspective of the field/object dichotomy. Based on the assumption that a vague object can be viewed as the Cited by: 1.

If a mountain is an object, then clearly it is likely that it has indistinct or indeterminate boundaries. Any ontology of geographic objects will have to deal with boundaries of this sort (Burrough and Frank, ; Burrough, ). Also, some geographic objects have bona fide or genuine boundaries— ‑ islands would be a good example in most.

For geographic objects, boundaries give rise to important and complex issues—for example pertaining to the oppositions: fiat vs. bona fide, crisp vs. The measure of the executive is the ability to "get the right things done." In this book, Peter Drucker identifies five practices essential to business effectiveness that can, and must, be learned: time management, choosing what to contribute to a particular organization, knowing where and how to mobilize strength for the best effect, setting up the right priorities, and knitting all of these /5(23).

book Geographic Objects with Indeterminate Boundaries (Burrough and Frank, ), an edited collection of papers on the problem of uncertainty, and its manifestation in vague boundaries. The issue had long festered in cartography, but as long as boundaries had to be drawn on paper using a pen there had been no alternative to portraying them as.

This book develops, for the first time, a qualitative model for the representation of spatial knowledge based only on locative relations between the objects core of this book is devoted to the study of qualitative inference methods that take into account the rich structure of space.

These methods can be applied to quite a number of areas characterized by uncertain or incomplete. Objects with broad boundaries are spatial objects, whose crisp boundaries are replaced by an area expressing the boundary’s uncertainty. There are two main interpretations for broad boundaries: (1) for positional uncertainty, the broad boundary represents the set of all possible positions among which the unknown boundary position is hidden; (2) for “fuzzy” boundaries, that is, boundaries.

This book gives an overview of the wide range of spatial statistics available to analyse ecological data, and provides advice and guidance for graduate students and practising researchers who are either about to embark on spatial analysis in ecological studies or who have started but are unsure how to by: E.

Due to China's vastness, it is unsurprising that the Chinese have a long tradition of conceptualizing the country as a collection of regions. The Tribute of Yu, believed to be written before BC, portrayed China as being made up of nine riverine regions (Wilkinson, ).A modern adaptation of this concept is William Skinner's macroregional framework, which is a popular tool for Cited by: 4.

Notable modern examples of artificial lake islands include the Dutch polder of Flevopolder in Flevoland, the island of IJburg in Amsterdam, and Flamingo Island in Kamfers Dam, South Africa.

Objects, we can say, come in two sorts, the bona fide and the created, the latter being distinguished from the former solely in the fact that their boundaries arise, in whole or in part, through human cognitive operations of certain special sorts, in such a way that both boundaries and objects exist only in virtue of these operations.

Poorly defined boundaries (also known as fuzzy objects) occur when there is no clear boundary of an object in geographical information systems (GIS), an eventuality that is common when dealing with highly variable metrics within a geography, 12,13 such as soil : Brittany Corley, Shannon L.

Generally, Parker () lists five types of boundaries: Geographic Boundaries, Political Boundaries, Demographic Boundaries, Cultural Boundaries, and Economic.
