Abstract:
With the rapid development of spatial and non-spatial databases of population, economy, social and natural
environment from different sources, times and formats, It has been a challenge how to efficiently integrate
those space-time data and methodology for spatial studies. This paper will discuss the recent development of
spatial intelligence technologies and methodologies for spatial data integration, data analysis, as well as their
applications for spatial studies. The presentation will introduce the newly developed spatial data explorers
(China Geo-Explorer , US Geo-Explorer, Spatial Explorer of Religion, and Urban and Regional Explorer)
distributed by the University of Michigan China Data Center. It will demonstrate how space-time data of
different formats and sources can be integrated, visualized, analyzed and reported in a web based spatial
system. Some applications in population and regional development, disaster assessment, environment and
health, cultural and religious studies, and household surveys will be discussed for China, US and global studies.
Future directions on Euro Geo-Explorer will be discussed finally.
