 +GIS wide applicability and flexibility provided the basis for much evolution in data management in the last decadesThe interest on the computational representation of geography-related objects and phenomena inspired the evolution of a wide range of data management tools and techniques, including computational geometry algorithms, multidimensional data structures, spatial indexing, geographic data modeling, geographic visualizationgeostatisticsand much more
