"The concepts within the book are written very thoroughly. Ti avoids repeating many basic concepts, and achieves its goal of covering advanced topics in geoinformation science. In general, the book does an excellent job of presenting issues that are at the forefront of geographic data collection, management, transformation, analysis and decision-making."GEOMATICA, Vol. 65, No. 2,2011
