5D Data Modelling: Full Integration of 2D/3D Space, Time and Scale Dimensions

  title={5D Data Modelling: Full Integration of 2D/3D Space, Time and Scale Dimensions},
  author={Peter van Oosterom and Jantien E. Stoter},
This paper proposes an approach for data modelling in five dimensions. Apart from three dimensions for geometrical representation and a fourth dimension for time, we identify scale as fifth dimensional characteristic. Considering scale as an extra dimension of geographic information, fully integrated with the other dimensions, is new. Through a formal definition of geographic data in a conceptual 5D continuum, the data can be handled by one integrated approach assuring consistency across scale… CONTINUE READING
