Geographically embedded networks (GENets) are systems of physical and abstract linked relationships contained wholly or partially within geographic space. The purpose of this dissertation is to examine the question, “what are the particular characteristics of networks in geography?” To uncover such properties, a series of network case studies is ex...

Abstract Object-oriented geographic data models provide an organizational scheme to associate domain specific meaning to primitive GIS elements like points, polylines, and polygons. Although use of data models is widespread in the GIS community, the design process is not necessarily obvious and often ad hoc. This article outlines a procedure for th...
