Using Bayes Nets for GIS

The following collection of papers highlight the groundbreaking research being done in the intersecting fields of geospatial information systems (GIS) and Bayes Net technology. It is meant to be a resource to the GIS community, especially our new GeoNetica clients. If you too are a pioneer in this emerging field (or know someone who is), and would like to contribute a paper, we invite you to connect with us.
