GIS to Support Cost-effective Decisions on Renewable Sources : Applications for low temperature geothermal energy, Paperback / softback Book

GIS to Support Cost-effective Decisions on Renewable Sources : Applications for low temperature geothermal energy Paperback / softback

Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology series

Description

Through the results of a developed case study of information system for low temperature geothermal energy, GIS to Support Cost-effective Decisions on Renewable Sources addresses the issue of the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in evaluating cost-effectiveness of renewable resource exploitation on a regional scale.

Focusing on the design of a Decision Support System, a process is presented aimed to transform geographic data into knowledge useful for analysis and decision-making on the economic exploitation of geothermal energy.

This detailed description includes a literature review and technical issues related to data collection, data mining, decision analysis for the informative system developed for the case study.

A multi-disciplinary approach to GIS design is presented which is also an innovative example of fusion of georeferenced data acquired from multiple sources including remote sensing, networks of sensors and socio-economic censuses.

GIS to Support Cost-effective Decisions on Renewable Sources is a useful, practical reference for engineers, managers and researchers involved in the design of GIS, decision support systems, investment planning/strategy in renewable energy and ICT innovation in this field.
