Book Contents

Geoinformatics is a component of Encyclopedia of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Geoinformatics is a science which develops and uses information science infrastructure to address the problems of geosciences and related branches of engineering. The content of the theme on Geoinformatics is organized with state-of-the-art presentations covering the following aspects of the subject: Sample Data and Survey; Remote Sensing and Environmental Monitoring; Statistical Analysis in the Geosciences; International Cooperation for Data Acquisition and Use, which are then expanded into multiple subtopics, each as a chapter.

These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers and NGOs.

Peter Atkinson is full Professor of Geography at the University of Southampton. Prior to joining the University of Southampton, he spent three years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Geography, University of Bristol. He obtained his B.Sc. degree from the Department of Geography, University of Nottingham in 1986, and his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Geography, University of Sheffield (NERC CASE award with Rothamsted Experimental Station) in 1990. His main research interests are in spatial statistics and spatial modelling, with particular emphasis on geostatistics, GIS, remote sensing and spatially distributed dynamic modelling. His substantive interests are varied and include biogeography, ecology, epidemiology, soil survey, geomorphology, land surface hydrology, and a range of natural hazards within these (e.g., disease, landsliding, flooding). Peter Atkinson has published numerous refereed journal articles. In addition, he has edited five books on remote sensing or GIS and seven journal special issues. He is joint Editor of International Journal of Remote Sensing Letters, and is an Editorial Board member for several journals. He has been PI on several grants and contracts and currently sits on numerous international scientific committees.
