Towards a Quantum Theory of Geographic Fields

pdf-format:
LIPIcs-COSIT-2017-5.pdf (1 MB)


Abstract

This paper proposes a framework that that allows for the possibility that multiple classically incompatible states are expressed simultaneously at a given point of a geographic field. The admission of such superposition states provides the basis for a new understanding of indeterminacy and ontological vagueness in the geographic world.
