The 3-D Global Spatial Data Model: Foundation of the Spatial Data infrastructure

Earl F. Burkholder

Traditional methods for handling spatial data are encumbered by the assumption of separate origins for horizontal and vertical measurements. Modern measurement systems operate in a 3-D spatial environment. This book offers a new model for handling digital spatial data, the global spatial data model, or GSDM. 

The GSDM preserves the integrity of three-dimensional spatial data while also providing additional benefits such as simpler equations, worldwide standardization, and the ability to track spatial data accuracy with greater specificity and convenience. This spatial model incorporates both a functional model and a stochastic model to connect the physical world to the ECEF rectangular system. 

Combining horizontal and vertical data into a single, three-dimensional database, this authoritative monograph provides a logical development of theoretical concepts and practical tools that can be used to handle spatial data more efficiently. The book clearly describes procedures that can be used to handle both ECEF and flat-Earth rectangular components in the context of a rigorous global environment. 

Features:

  • Uses standard measurements that can be applied to disciplines all around the world
  • Supports both analog map plots and computer visualization of digital data
  • Combines horizontal and vertical data into a single three-dimensional database, facilitating rigorous error propagation and standard deviation computations
  • Utilizes the BURKFORD TM software, readily available for download on a companion website, to perform 3-D coordinate geometry and error propagation computations.
