Bringing Vector and Raster Representation in GIS

  title={Bringing Vector and Raster Representation in GIS},
  author={Stephen Winter},
Representations in Geoiiormation Systems (GIS) are classified into vector and raster representation. They are dual with regard to space bounding and space fiig. Spatial concepts are also dual with entity-based and field-based concepts. In this sitnation a hybrid representation is investigated. R will show that the hybrid representation is a promising approach of integration, useful for data t%sion and interoperabiWy.
