Example text

Having been developed in a clean, implementation-independent way, the theory can then stand as a benchmark, or reference standard, against which many different implementations in specific systems may be assessed. A Notes Towards a Formal Theory of Processes and Events All the theorems listed below have been proved, but there is no space here to include the proofs. These may be obtained from the author on request. We define a many-sorted first-order language with identity, with sorts P (Processes), E (Event types), and T (Time instants).

16 The algorithm was asked to look for rules with these quartile-boundary crossing events as causes, and the fish-movement events as effects. We did not pursue this line of enquiry beyond the initial stages as it became clear that the results were somewhat disappointing. Here we present just those results obtained when we looked for rules relating the environmental events wl3q(cd), wl3q(efgh), wl3q(ijklm) and the downstream boundary-crossing events c\d, d\e, e\f, f\g, g\h, h\i, i\n, k\j, m\k. Only 26 rules were found, all with F1 scores below 30 %.

In everyday speech these terms may be used in a variety of ways; for the purpose of a more disciplined treatment we need to determine exactly what relations we want to refer to, and to select appropriate vocabulary to describe them. For more on this see [15,16]. 4 Conclusion Following a long-standing tradition in GIScience, this paper began by focussing on the distinction between two fundamentally different classes of function that it has been thought desirable for a GIS to accommodate: on the one hand the data-modelling functions that are concerned with tasks such as the input, storage, retrieval, organisation, manipulation, and presentation of data, and on the other hand the process-modelling functions such as explanation, simulation and prediction which, to be successful, must embody a theory of the real-world phenomena which are being modelled.
