At a time when people use more and more geographic informationand tools, the management of geographical information in softwaresystems still holds many challenges and motivates researchers fromdifferent backgrounds to propose innovative solutions. Representing geographical space beyond our mere perception is keyto making relevant decisions, whether it is with respect tosustainable development or to the planning of everyday activities.Designing, sharing and exploiting such representations entails manychallenges. This book presents recent software design projects, led in teams,which sometimes have different backgrounds, to address thesechallenges. It analyzes the specificities of these projects interms of motivation, data models and analysis methods. Proposalsare also put forward to improve resource sharing in thisdomain. Contents 1.
