Spatial Computation Type

Spatial decision problems vary widely with respect to how much computation is required that is explicitly spatial. For example, there is a large class of "spatial" decision problems that only needs information about the intrinsic attributes of the individual landscape features. In this case, there is no spatial processing to be done aside from iterating over the set of spatial features, so the characterization of spatial computation needed can accurately be characterized as "none." However, we included such cases in the ontology because they can be thought of as "intrinsically spatial."
