Extension of spatial operations to support 3D and temporal objects
is an essential requirement toward a multi-dimensional GIS.
Current approach is extending each spatial operation to a new
multi-dimensional space with the least increase in complexity and
speed based on the characteristics of the operation at hand as well
as the destination space. Such operation- and dimensiondependent
view points have led to technical solutions which can
not be generalized. This research hypothesizes that studying
spatial operations via their dimension-independent properties can
bridge the artificial gap created in implementing a spatial
operation for static 2D, static 3D, moving 2D and moving 3D
objects. Algebraic structures - and specifically category theory -
play the role of an integrating framework for the research.
