Inhaltsangabe:Zusammenfassung: Anwendungen Geographischer Informationssysteme können gewinnbringend auch für Flughäfen durchgeführt werden. Informationen mit räumlichem Bezug haben für einen Flughafen betriebsbedingt eine hohe Bedeutung. Vermehrt finden sich daher EDV-Anwendungen zur Visualisierung und Analyse von Raumdaten und unterstützen damit ein effektives Flughafenmanagement. Ausgehend von ersten Anwendungen Geographischer Informationssysteme für Flughäfen des amerikanischen Marktes haben auch deutsche Flughäfen mittlerweile Zugang zu dieser Technologie gefunden. Sie sind daher Inhalt einer empirischen Datenerhebung im Rahmen dieser Arbeit. Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, einen möglichst umfassenden und aktuellen wissenschaftlichen Hintergrund der Thematik GIS-Anwendungen für Flughäfen, als einen jungen und derzeit expandierenden Anwendungsbereich Geographischer Informationssysteme, darzustellen. Dabei stehen die unterschiedlichen Anwendungsformen für Fragestellungen des Funktionsraumes Flughafen im Mittelpunkt.

Designing Geodatabases for Transportation addresses the development of a GIS to manage data relating to the transportation facilities and service commonly organized around various modes of travel for accurate and reliable data exchange. Transportation involves several modes of travel, and although the details of each mode can be quite different, this book demonstrates how all follow a basic conceptual structure. That structure consists of an origin, a destination, a path between the two, and a conveyance that provides the ability to move along the path to establish a common data structure.

One aspect of the new economy is a transition to a networked society, and the emergence of a highly interconnected, interdependent and complex system of networks to move people, goods and information. An example of this is the in creasing reliance of networked systems (e. g. , air transportation networks, electric power grid, maritime transport, etc. ) on telecommunications and information in frastructure. Many of the networks that evolved today have an added complexity in that they have both a spatial structure – i. e. , they are located in physical space but also an a spatial dimension brought on largely by their dependence on infor mation technology. They are also often just one component of a larger system of geographically integrated and overlapping networks operating at different spatial levels. An understanding of these complexities is imperative for the design of plans and policies that can be used to optimize the efficiency, performance and safety of transportation, telecommunications and other networked systems. In one sense, technological advances along with economic forces that encourage the clustering of activities in space to reduce transaction costs have led to more efficient network structures. At the same time the very properties that make these networks more ef ficient have also put them at a greater risk for becoming disconnected or signifi cantly disruptedwh en super connected nodes are removed either intentionally or through a targeted attack.

This volume contains the papers presented at the International Workshop “Information Fusion and Geographic Information Systems” (IF&GIS’09) held in St. Petersburg, Russia in May 2009. The workshop was organized by the St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SPIIRAS). The workshop continues a series organised biannually, and attracts academics and industrials from a wide range of disciplines including computer science, geography, statistics, mathematics, hydrography, geomorphology, and environmental sciences. The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum for innovative research oriented towards Geographic Information Science and tech- logies and Corporate Information Systems whose close association highlight novel theoretical and practical challenges. The papers selected by the International Program Committee cover a wide range of innovative areas including ontological and semantic approaches for the representation of geographical data, geographical data monitoring, situation management and forecast, to emerging applications oriented to the maritime environment, disaster management and security threats. While traditional topics of GIS conferences are well represented and still being advanced, several new domains appear and stress the need for the development of versatile monitoring systems and decision making systems. While GIS already have a de facto standard for geographical monitoring and analysis, the papers accepted in this volume also illustrate several novel directions of application whose objective is more closely oriented to process modeling and decision making, and where the nature of the objects represented is revisited using ontological and semantic approaches.
