Abstract AMUSING is studying the main problems in spatial data management and aims to define and verify, both at the theoretical and experimental level, techniques and methodologies for designing, modelling, accessing and effectively using large amounts of geographical data. This project builds on the results of the BASIC GOODS (3191) working group.


The general objective of the project is to define the main features and principles of a next-generation architecture for geographical information system (GIS) applications. The main aims are to:

Approach and Methods

The approach will be to:

The results obtained will be assessed in a prototyping and case study activity involving case studies conducted in cooperation with end-users in real-life applications.


Results from the project will provide better theoretical foundations and more validated practical basis for the implementation in commercial GIS of the advanced functionalities increasingly required.
