... the definitive work to guide STK users in maximizing the potential of this powerful spatial temporal information system. The material is well organized, clearly articulated, and superbly illustrates the breadth and depth of this software. This book is the best in its field and STK users from high school to space operations centers will greatly benefit from owning it. -Nicholas Eftimiades, Kings College London McNeil and Kelso move beyond a mere software feature walk and instead take the reader through a guided tour of how to solve specific problems with each of the modules of the tool. ... A novice can use this book as a primer to learn the software suite and get exposed to the wide variety engineer problems it addresses. However, even the most experienced user will appreciate the new perspectives on the nuances of the tool and its application that this book provides. -Hank Grabowski, CTO, Applied Defense Solutions ... an incredibly comprehensive introduction to using Systems Tool Kit (STK) software for modeling and simulating spatial temporal information systems. ... a must-have resource for anyone who wants to learn the basics of STK - from rocket scientists to engineers and students! -Paul Graziani, Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI) the authors have done a very good job highlighting an important study area where ontological representation using STK could be the way forward for the next generation of SpatioTemporal Information Systems. -R.
