Spatial information users and providers are increasingly concerned about the legal implications relating to the use and dissemination of geographic information for which there are no right or wrong methods of practice, and no one source of information. This book fills the gap by addressing key issues in contract law, intellectual property law, rights and responsabilities and liability as they relate to the GI community.
  • The first book to interpret the law relating to GI Science and outline its implications to a general readership
  • Provides a comprehensive discourse in law and GI Science irrespective of jurisdiction
  • Offers a global perspective throughout with case materials coming from the UK, North America, the EU and Australasia
