Author Affiliations +
After brief explanation of the origin of the grid, the author firstly points out the multi-resolution partition of geo-space, which is the basic issue of the specialized spatial information grid, relates to the globe directly as the region of interest expands. And the global grid system is an efficient way to solve problems on spheres. Secondly, the author introduces achievements on geospatial information global grid systems which based on both traditional geographic coordinate system and regular, multi-resolution partitions of polyhedra. At last, this author point out the problems that remains to be studied in this field.
