As the use of geographical information systems develops apace, a significant strand of research activity is being directed to the fundamental nature of geographic information. This volume contains a collection of essays and discussions on this theme. What is geographic information? What fundamental principles are associated with it? How can it be represented? How does it represent the world? How can geographic information be quantified? How can it be communicated and related to the other information sciences? How does HCI tie in with it? A number of other more specific but relevant issues are considered, such as Spatio-temporal relationships, boundaries, granularity and taxonomy. This book is a revised and updated version of a collection of presentations given by a group of distinguished researchers in the field of Geographic Information Science who gathered in Manchester in July 2001. It should be useful for graduate students as well as researchers and high-level professionals.

Bodenschätze, die überwältigenden Naturschönheiten, die Vielfalt scheinbar intakter Kulturen, wirtschaftliche Vielfalt - das sind Stichwörter, die man gemeinhin mit den Anden verbindet. Erstmals seit Jahrzehnten wird eine Gesamtschau eines Erdraums versucht, der durch die längste Gebirgskette der Erde verbunden ist. In diesem Raum von außerordentlicher klimatischer, floristischer und geologischer Vielfalt hatten sich vor Ankunft der Spanier Hochkulturen entwickelt und bis heute ist der Andenraum durch die Diversität von ethnischen, demographischen, kulturellen und wirtschaftlichen Strukturen sowie die Disparität von sozioökonomischen Schichten gekennzeichnet. Die Andenländer stellen sich auf unterschiedlichen Wegen der Herausforderung, ihre natürlichen und kulturellen Potenziale besser zu nutzen und dennoch die ökologischen Grundlagen nicht zu gefährden, die wirtschaftlichen Disparitäten zu überwinden, und soziale Kohärenz herzustellen. Dieses mit faszinierenden Fotos und anschaulichen Grafiken reich bebilderte Buch liefert Grundlagen für ein besseres Verständnis dieses Naturraums mit seinen Problemen. Axel Borsdorf ist Ordinarius des Instituts für Geographie an der Universität Innsbruck und Leiter des Instituts für Interdisziplinare Gebirgsforschung der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Er ist Autor oder Herausgeber zahlreicher Bücher zu verschiedenen Themen der Humangeographie, der Alpen und der Anden. Christoph Stadel ist Emeritus an der Universität Salzburg und Adjunct Professor des Institute for Natural Resources an der University of Manitoba, Kanada. Er ist der Verfasser zahlreicher Arbeiten zur vergleichenden Hochgebirgsgeographie und zur Geographie der Anden.
