dc.description.abstractThroughout history, humankind has segmented and structured the spatial environment in various ways to support administrative, political and economic activities. To date, the majority of spatial boundaries have been constructed in an uncoordinated manner with individual organisations generating individual boundaries to meet individual needs. This practice has resulted in boundary layers that even the most sophisticated GIS (Geographic Information System) technology is unable to cross analyse accurately. Consequently, geospatial information is fragmented over a series of boundary units. The objective of this paper is to identify issues associated with the division of our geospatial environment. Also, to investigate new methods for the organisation of data by applying the principles of Hierarchical Spatial Reasoning (HSR), where HSR can be used as the theoretical framework for investigating the hierarchical structuring of space and its use in reasoning. The study aims to examine the global extent of the problem, while focusing on solutions for the state of Victoria, Australia.en_US
