The seminar given on the 5th December by Professor Mike Worboys was entitled: ‘A Fresh Look at the Object-Field Dichotomy’. In Mike’s own words, this was a ‘fairly abstract’ talk that looked at the mathematical structures lying behind geographical objects and fields, as well as introducing a fresh look at their definitions. Professor Worboys, an Honorary Professor in the School of GeoSciences here at Edinburgh, is a mathematician by trade, and throughout his career has tried to bridge the gap between GIS and the mathematical theory behind it.
