Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Geographic data bases are used in many different work situations for, e.g., city planning, traffic system design, public utility planning and maintenance, travel, emergency management, and should be considered a module to be integrated in dedicated decision support systems. In the present paper geographic information systems are discussed in this context of dedicated work support system development, and the requirement for an adequate work analysis are reviewed.Finally, the role of geographical information systems for a particular application,that is, emergency management, is outlined as an example.
