Proceedings of GIS/LIS 89, Volume 2
An object oriented approach to the analysis of spatial data is presented. W6 begin by describing object oriented programming, and then define a structure of spatial and analytical objects within the problem domain of locating facilities. From these objects a set of object classes and inheritance structures is created. The spatial and analytical objects are represented using frames. A Smalltalk implementation of a heuristic location-allocation algorithm is also described.
