Abstract

The AA. propose a multi-hierarchical landsystem approach. As a case study, they use an area in southern Spain near the town of Álora. They demonstrate how the contextual knowledge of a soil surveyor can be structured in a nested hierarchy to facilitate better communication within and between diciplines, for an interdisciplinary application (land evaluation, land use, erosion, and hydrology). They argue that a GIS database requires proper description of the different kinds of formal relationships that exist between objects and object classes, and between elementary and composite objects
