Data Modelling and Management for 3D/4D Geoinformation Systems

Part of the Lecture Notes in Earth Sciences book series (LNEARTH, volume 94)


This chapter goes into the spatial and temporal concepts of geoinformation systems and describes the modelling of 3D/4D objects. The specification of topological relationships for non-primitive geo-objects and temporal state transitions for topological relationships are consolidated. Basis operations for the mapping of state transitions for tetrahedra are given. Concerning the management of spatio-temporal objects the checking of integrity constraints for geological objects and the spatio-temporal database access for large object sets are discussed.
