Why Classificatory Information of Geographic Regions Is Quantum Information (Vision Paper)

pdf-format:
LIPIcs-COSIT-2019-16.pdf (1 MB)


Abstract

This paper gives an information - theoretic argument in support of the claim that there is geographic quantum information. Quantum information is information in the sense of Shannon's information theory, that, in addition, satisfies two characteristic postulates. The paper aims to show that if the density of information (bits per unit of space) that is possible for classificatory geographic qualities is limited, then it follows that the two characteristic postulates of quantum information are satisfied for information about those geographic qualities.
