This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the International Conference on Spatial Information Theory, COSIT 2003, held at Kartause Ittingen, Switzerland, in September 2003. The 26 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 61 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on ontologies of space and time, reasoning about distances and directions, spatial reasoning - shapes and diagrams, computational approaches, reasoning about regions, vagueness, visualization, and landmarks and wayfinding.
Ontologies of Space and Time -- Desiderata for a Spatio-temporal Geo-ontology -- Scale in Object and Process Ontologies -- Landscape Categories in Yindjibarndi: Ontology, Environment, and Language -- Layers: A New Approach to Locating Objects in Space -- Reasoning about Distances and Directions -- Spatial Reasoning about Relative Orientation and Distance for Robot Exploration -- Structuring a Wayfinder's Dynamic Space-Time Environment -- Systematic Distortions in Cognitive Maps: The North American West Coast vs. the (West) Coast of Israel -- Spatial Reasoning: Shapes and Diagrams -- Tripartite Line Tracks Qualitative Curvature Information -- Linearized Terrain: Languages for Silhouette Representations -- Maintaining Spatial Relations in an Incremental Diagrammatic Reasoner -- Computational Approaches -- MAGS Project: Multi-agent GeoSimulation and Crowd Simulation -- "Simplest" Paths: Automated Route Selection for Navigation -- A Classification Framework for Approaches to Achieving Semantic Interoperability between GI Web Services -- Reasoning about Regions -- Relative Adjacencies in Spatial Pseudo-Partitions -- A Geometry for Places: Representing Extension and Extended Objects -- Intuitive Modelling of Place Name Regions for Spatial Information Retrieval -- Convexity in Discrete Space -- Vagueness -- Stratified Rough Sets and Vagueness -- Communicating Vague Spatial Concepts in Human-GIS Interactions: A Collaborative Dialogue Approach -- Visualization -- Wayfinding Choremes -- Testing the First Law of Cognitive Geography on Point-Display Spatializations -- Constructing Semantically Scalable Cognitive Spaces -- Landmarks and Wayfinding -- Route Adaptive Selection of Salient Features -- Referring to Landmark or Street Information in Route Directions: What Difference Does It Make? -- Extracting Landmarks with Data Mining Methods -- Visual Attention during Route Learning: A Look at Selection and Engagement.
