9780123694461: Foundations of Multidimensional and Metric Data Structures (The Morgan Kaufmann Series in Computer Graphics)

The field of multidimensional data structures is large and growing very quickly. Here, for the first time, is a thorough treatment of multidimensional point data, object and image-based representations, intervals and small rectangles, and high-dimensional datasets. The book includes a thorough introduction; a comprehensive survey to spatial and multidimensional data structures and algorithms; and implementation details for the most useful data structures. Along with the hundreds of worked exercises and hundreds of illustrations, the result is an excellent and valuable reference tool for professionals in many areas, including computer graphics, databases, geographic information systems (GIS), game programming, image processing, pattern recognition, solid modeling, similarity retrieval, and VLSI design. Award Winner in 2006 "Best Book” competition in Professional and Scholarly Publishing from the Association of American Publishers.

Morgan Kaufmann would like to congratulate Hanan Samet on receiving the UCGIS 2009 Research Award!

Book Description Morgan Kaufmann, 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Multidimensional data is data that exists and changes in more than one dimension, by time, or spatially, or both, sometimes dynamically. Think here of tracking hurricane data in order to project the storm's path, for just one example. As spatial and other multidimensional data structures become increasingly important for the applications in game programming, data mining, bioinformatics, and many other areas--including astronomy, geographic information systems, physics, etc., the need for a comprehensive book on the subject is paramount. This book is truly a life's work by the author who is clearly the best person for the job. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0123694469
