Map dynamics: integrating cellular automata and GIS through Geo-Algebra

Abstract. In this paper the modelling formalism of cellular automata (CA) is
generalized and extended within Geo-Algebra, a mathematical
map algebra capable of expressing a variety of dynamic spatial models
data manipulations within a common framework. Map dynamics, that is, the
integration of the spatial dynamics re� ected in CA and the spatial data
capabilities of map algebra, constitutes a critical element within a
which sets out to formulate a general framework for simultaneously
spatial database manipulations and static and dynamic modelling within GIS.
Map dynamics can also allow the modelling of additional dynamic behaviours
and phenomena such as adaptation, design, learning and gaming not currently
expressible as GIS models.
