Advanced GIS for earth and environment [Lecture notes]
Bruin, S. de \ Temme, A. \ 2013
geographical information systems

Used in course: GRS-33306 Advanced Geo-information Science for Earth and Environment
Corporate information strategy and management : the challenges of managing in a network economy [Monograph] - 6th ed
Applegate, L.M. \ Austin, R.D. \ McFarlan, F.W. \ 2003
information systems - management - information technology - businesses - decision making - management information systems - networks

This book examines how information technology (IT) enables organizations to conduct business in radically different and more effective ways. The commercialization of the Internet has created a seismic change in the business environment. New channels of supply and distribution are emerging. New electronic marketplaces and exchanges are being created. The infrastructures of firms and the industries within which they operate have been permanently altered. The objective of the book is to provide readers with a better understanding of the influence of 21st-century technologies on business decisions. The book discusses today's challenges from the point of view of the executives who are grappling with them. It recounts stories of success and failure, focusing on the issues faced and the decisions made by executives in companies around the world.

Fundamentals of satellite remote sensing : an environmental approach [Monograph] - Second edition.
Chuvieco, Emilio \ 2016

"Fundamentals of Satellite Remote Sensing: An Environmental Approach, Second Edition is a definitive guide to remote sensing systems that focuses on satellite-based remote sensing tools and methods for space-based Earth observation (EO). It presents the advantages of using remote sensing data for studying and monitoring the planet, and emphasizes concepts that make the best use of satellite data. The book begins with an introduction to the basic processes that ensure the acquisition of space-borne imagery and provides an overview of the main satellite observation systems. It then describes visual and digital image analysis, highlights various interpretation techniques, and outlines their applications to science and management. The latter part of the book covers the integration of remote sensing with GIS for environmental analysis. Based on the first English version published in 2010, this latest edition has been written to reflect a global audience, and factors in international debates and legal issues surrounding EO, as well as future developments and trends."--Publisher's description.

GIS, organisations and people : a socio-technical approach [Monograph]
Reeve, D.E. \ Petch, J.R. \ 1999
geographical information systems - information systems - organizations - people - textbooks

GIS projects have previously been viewed primarily as technical exercises but it is now evident that the success of GIS projects depends as much upon organisational issues as upon technicalities. GIS projects have socio-organisational contexts which must be taken into account if such projects are to succeed. The book presents an overview of the "human" side of GIS, both individual and organisational.

Spatial modelling and statistics [Lecture notes]
Bruin, S. de \ Heuvelink, G. \ Ligtenberg, A. \ 2013
geographical information systems - models - methodology - spatial models - geostatistics - modeling - spatial statistics

Models of spatial processes are important means to support decision making. Such a model, however, is merely a formal and geo-referenced representation of a mental construction about the real world. The course will offer knowledge and skills to qualify and review such spatial models. This will be done by a methodological triptych. First the explanation and application of geostatistics will elaborate upon the quality of model input. Secondly the origin of spatial models will be discussed. Thirdly via error propagation the thematic and geometric quality of spatial models outcomes will be statistically identified by using validation protocols.

A review and assessment of land-use change models: dynamics of space, time, and human choice [Monograph]
Agarwal, C. \ 2002
land use - models - decision making

Land-use change models are used by researchers and professionals to explore the dynamics and drivers of land-use/land-cover change and to inform policies affecting such change. A broad array of models and modeling methods are available to researchers, and each type has certain advantages and disadvantages depending on the objective of the research. This report presents a review of different types of models as a means of exploring the functionality and ability of different approaches. In this review, we try to explicitly incorporate human processes, because of their centrality in land-use/land-cover change. We present a framework to compare land-use change models in terms of scale (both spatial and temporal) and complexity, and how well they incorporate space, time, and human decisionmaking. Initially, we examined a summary set of 250 relevant citations and developed a bibliography of 136 papers. From these 136 papers a set of 19 land-use models were reviewed in detail as representative of the broader set of models identified from the more comprehensive review of literature. Using a tabular approach, we summarize and discuss the 19 models in terms of dynamic (temporal) and spatial interactions, as well as human decisionmaking as defined by the earlier framework. To eliminate the general confusion surrounding the term scale, we evaluate each model with respect to pairs of analogous parameters of spatial, temporal, and decisionmaking scales: (1) spatial resolution and extent, (2) time step and duration, and (3) decisionmaking agent and domain. Although a wide range of spatial and temporal scales is covered collectively by the models examined, we find most individual models occupy a much more limited spatio-temporal niche. Many raster models we examined mirror the extent and resolution of common remote-sensing data. The broadest-scale models are, in general, not spatially explicit. We also find that models incorporating higher levels of human decisionmaking are more centrally located with respect to spatial and temporal scales, probably due to the lack of data availability at more extreme scales. Further, we examine the social drivers of land-use change and methodological trends exemplified in the models we reviewed. Finally, we conclude with some proposals for future directions in land-use modeling.
