Computer-Human Interaction Issues when Integrating Qualitative Spatial Reasoning into Geographic Information

Computer-Human Interaction Issues when Integrating
Qualitative Spatial Reasoning into Geographic Information
Systems
ABSTRACT
To allow the immense volume of spatial data currently
available to be used effectively, people need intelligent
query tools that are simple and intuitive. Standard query
tools have a number of serious usability limitations, as they
often rely solely on numerical approaches when dealing
with spatial information. The qualitative reasoning
community has addressed this issue, by providing powerful
formalisms based on the way that humans deal with spatial
information, however, integrating these methods into
numerical systems raises a number of new CHI problems.
This paper addresses three key CHI challenges when
combining qualitative and numerical methods: (1)
managing the subjective, ambiguous nature of qualitative
terms, (2) providing a powerful, yet simple query system,
and (3) effectively visualising a complex, fuzzy qualitative
