Abstract

Geographic information systems (GIS) are an essential tool for the management and visualization of large amounts of environmental information. The GIS that are available on the market now are the result of an evolutionary application-oriented development based on early research activities by the geoscientific community. Several conceptional deficiencies of these systems have become more obvious recently as research on spatial databases has made some significant progress.
