This paper describes Geo-Algebra, a mathematical framework for supporting geo-computational modelling in conjunction with GIS-based spacial data manipulation capabilities. Geo-Algebra overcomes the discrepancy between spacial modelling and GIS in the modes of representation as well as in their underlying concepts of space by using a common representational framework for (1) mathematical models expressing spatial relationships and (2) data models of georeferenced information. Geographic models… CONTINUE READING
