Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Programming language
  • Law

His primary areas of study are Information system, Data mining, Spatial intelligence, Information retrieval and Qualitative reasoning. The Information system study combines topics in areas such as Data modeling, User interface, Navigational instrument and Data science. His work carried out in the field of Data mining brings together such families of science as Basis, Theoretical computer science and Data structure.

His Spatial intelligence research focuses on subjects like Cardinal direction, which are linked to Expert system, Spatial–temporal reasoning, Algebraic specification, Identity element and Algebra. His study in the field of Ontology, Query language and Process ontology also crosses realms of Query by Example. The concepts of his Qualitative reasoning study are interwoven with issues in Spatial relation and Reasoning system.

His most cited work include:

  • Geographic Objects with Indeterminate Boundaries (471 citations)
  • Spatial Infromation Theory - A Theoretical Basis for GIS (386 citations)
  • Theories and Methods of Spatio-Temporal Reasoning in Geographic Space (359 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Geographic information system, Information retrieval, Data mining, Artificial intelligence and Spatial analysis. Andrew U. Frank has researched Geographic information system in several fields, including Theoretical computer science, Field and Information system. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Expert system and Data science.

As a part of the same scientific family, Andrew U. Frank mostly works in the field of Artificial intelligence, focusing on Human–computer interaction and, on occasion, Metaphor and Context. Andrew U. Frank interconnects Spatial intelligence and Database in the investigation of issues within Spatial analysis. Andrew U. Frank combines subjects such as Spatial relation and Cardinal direction with his study of Spatial intelligence.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geographic information system (26.90%)
  • Information retrieval (12.69%)
  • Data mining (13.20%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2020)?

  • Geographic information system (26.90%)
  • Theoretical computer science (10.15%)
  • Information retrieval (12.69%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Andrew U. Frank spends much of his time researching Geographic information system, Theoretical computer science, Information retrieval, Artificial intelligence and Human–computer interaction. His Geographic information system research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Spatial intelligence, Spatial relation and Field. Andrew U. Frank focuses mostly in the field of Spatial intelligence, narrowing it down to topics relating to GIS and public health and, in certain cases, Public relations.

His work deals with themes such as Space, Spatial database, Geospatial analysis and Implementation, which intersect with Theoretical computer science. His Information retrieval research integrates issues from Semantics, Conceptualization and Scale. The study incorporates disciplines such as Context, Shortest path problem, Formalism, Information system and Personally identifiable information in addition to Human–computer interaction.

Between 2007 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Wayfinding Model For Pedestrian Navigation (36 citations)
  • Using a modified invasive weed optimization algorithm for a personalized urban multi-criteria path optimization problem. (33 citations)
  • Analysis of dependence of decision quality on data quality (27 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Programming language
  • Law

His primary areas of study are Operations research, Algorithm, Human–computer interaction, Spatial relation and Semantics. His Algorithm study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Spatial database, Dimension, Space, Generalization and Data structure. His Spatial database research incorporates elements of Functional programming, Theoretical computer science, Intersection, Algebraic structure and Construct.

His research investigates the connection with Human–computer interaction and areas like Artificial intelligence which intersect with concerns in Negotiation, Computer vision and Pedestrian navigation. Andrew U. Frank merges many fields, such as Spatial relation and Cognitive development, in his writings. His Semantics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Common ground, Spatial analysis, Level of detail and Models of communication.
