By Beniamino Murgante, Giuseppe Borruso, Alessandra Lapucci

Sixteen years in the past, Franklin predicted that approximately eighty% of knowledge comprise geo-referenced details. up to now, the provision of geographic facts and knowledge is growing to be, including the potential of clients to function with IT instruments and tools. Spatial info infrastructures are transforming into and make allowance a large variety of clients to depend upon them. This development has now not been totally coupled to a rise of information to help spatial judgements. Spatial analytical ideas, geographical research and modelling equipment are for that reason required to examine information and to facilitate the choice strategy in any respect degrees. previous geographical concerns can locate a solution because of new equipment and tools, whereas new matters are constructing, demanding researchers in the direction of new options. This quantity goals to give a contribution to the improvement of recent concepts and techniques to enhance the method of information acquisition. The Geocomputational expression is said to the advance and the appliance of latest theories, equipment and instruments so that it will offer larger options to complicated geographical difficulties. The geocomputational research mentioned during this quantity, will be categorized in keeping with 3 major domain names of functions; the 1st one regarding spatial selection help method and to spatial uncertainty, the second one attached to man made intelligence, the 3rd in keeping with all spatial records techniques.

A Tale of Two Cities: Density Analysis of CBD on Two Midsize Urban Areas 47 Fig. 2. 2 Udine A similar dataset has been built with reference to the urban area of Udine. Differently from the Trieste case, the activities extracted from Yellow Pages were georeferenced at street number address level by means of Google Earth and converted in GIS formats to be loaded in as a geographical database (Figure 2 left). The 'elementary geography' of activities here refers to an area slightly higher than that enclosed within the borders of the municipality of Udine.

If Trieste set on year 1989 - fall of the Iron Curtain - the start of a different declining economic period, Udine can dates back to 1976 - the year of the big earthquake the start of a process of economic renewal, changing its role from that of a poor area characterized by outbound migrations to a new one of spread, localized and selfgenerated industrialization, based on small and medium-size enterprises, therefore extending the phenomenon of the industrial districts eastwards from the Veneto area.
