This book comprehensively studies fuzzy temporal and spatial information, starting from the basics on fuzzy set theory and temporal/spatial reasoning, the development of a new model to represent fuzzy temporal/spatial information, the study of efficient and complete reasoning algorithms, and their application in an information retrieval context. This useful volume presents the first approach that goes beyond merely representing information, by thoroughly addressing a variety of reasoning tasks. It also focuses on applications in the domain of information retrieval, and demonstrating the practical importance of the proposed framework.
Relatedness of Fuzzy Sets, Fuzzification of Allen's Temporal Interval Relation; Reasoning About Qualitative Relations Between Fuzzy Intervals; Temporal Information Retrieval with Vague Events; Representation and Composition of Fuzzy Spatial Relations; Fuzzification of the Region Connection Calculus; Reasoning in the Fuzzy Region Connection Calculus; Geographic Information Retrieval with Vague Regions.
