VASA: An algebra for vague spatial data in databases

Alejandro Pauly, Markus Schneider
2010 Information Systems  
To support the efficient representation, querying, and manipulation of vague spatial data in a database context, we present a formal data model called vague spatial algebra (VASA).  ...  This algebra comprises a set of vague spatial data types for vague points, vague lines, and vague regions together with a comprehensive collection of vague spatial operations and vague topological predicates  ...  The goal of this article is the design, definition, and implementation of an object model for two-dimensional, vague spatial data, called vague spatial algebra (VASA), such that a DBMS data model and its  ...

Spatial vagueness and imprecision in databases

Alejandro Pauly, Markus Schneider
2008 Proceedings of the 2008 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '08  
The analysis in this paper is centered around the definition of our Vague Spatial Algebra (VASA) which exemplifies a complete approach to handle vagueness in spatial databases.  ...  The impossibility of current spatial database systems and GIS to handle spatial vagueness and imprecision has been recognized as an important problem in the spatial database domain.  ...  This results in an expected membership which is based on the defined probability function. VAGUE SPATIAL ALGEBRA In this section, we describe our concept of a Vague Spatial Algebra (VASA).  ...

Identifying topological predicates for vague spatial objects

Alejandro Pauly, Markus Schneider
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 ACM symposium on Applied computing - SAC '05  
Based on recent work on vague spatial data types, which are part of a formal data model called VASA (Vague Spatial Algebra) and which leverage exact models of crisp spatial data types, this paper introduces  ...  GIS and spatial database systems are currently unable to handle this kind of data.  ...  These vague topological predicates are part of a formal data model called VASA (Vague Spatial Algebra) and are based on recent work on so-called vague spatial data types [5] introducing vague points,  ...

Topological Predicates Between Vague Spatial Objects [chapter]

Alejandro Pauly, Markus Schneider
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This definition forms part of a formal data model referred to as VASA (Vague Spatial Algebra), in which the data types vague regions, vague lines, and vague points are defined in terms of existing definition  ...  Topological predicates are an important element of database systems that allow manipulation of spatial data.  ...  Spatial vagueness or indeterminacy is an inherent property of many objects that are handled in the spatial database context.  ...

Plateau Regions: An Implementation Concept for Fuzzy Regions in Spatial Databases and GIS [chapter]

Virupaksha Kanjilal, Hechen Liu, Markus Schneider
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In previous work, we have proposed an abstract data model of fuzzy spatial data types for fuzzy points, fuzzy lines, and fuzzy regions to represent the indeterminacy of spatial data.  ...  Many geographical applications need to model spatial phenomena with vague or indeterminate boundaries and interiors.  ...  The approaches in [3, 4] and our own approach, the Vague Spatial Algebra (VASA) [6] , leverage a three-valued logic with the truth values true, false, and maybe.  ...

Spatial Representation of Coastal Risk: A Fuzzy Approach to Deal with Uncertainty

Amaneh Jadidi, Mir Mostafavi, Yvan Bédard, Kyarash Shahriari
2014 ISPRS International Journal of Geo-Information  
Spatial information for coastal risk assessment is inherently uncertain. This uncertainty may be due to different spatial and temporal components of geospatial data and to their semantics.  ...  Indeed, coastal risk is inherently a dynamic, complex, scale-dependent, and vague, phenomenon in concept.  ...  Shahriari helped for designing and implementing the proposed algorithm based on his expertise in fuzzy logic.  ...
