Uncertain topological relations between imprecise regions

  author={Stephan Winter},

Spatial databases are repositories of representations of the real world. The represented entities have to be observed in the real world and mapped to the database. An observation is interpreted here as a two-level process, consisting of the abstraction of the observed object to a concept and a measurement of the realized concept. Due to the nature of observations, regions representing the location of objects are always imprecise, the explication of a concept succeeds only incompletely, and the… CONTINUE READING
