Implementation of Object Life Styles with noSQL Databases, Using the Example of CouchDB

If there is one unifying aspect describing the world we live in than it is certainly change. Heraclitus of Ephesus (520BC – 420BC) was probably the first to realize that „Change alone is unchanging“, meaning that nothing is ever static and everything changes constantly. Processes can be understood as the changing of a state and come in many forms. Some are barley noticeable affecting large regions of space (e. g., geological processes), others happen quickly and are locally confined (e. g. landslides). The representation of continuous change is of particular interest to Physical Geography and can be modeled using Partial Differential Equations. Human planning can be viewed as a discrete process over multiple levels of detail, involving physical objects. Social processes involve social objects and result in immediate changes, e. g., marriage. Recent work by TREIBLMAYR (2011) suggests the benefits of combining business and spatial processes. An important point is that business processes are understood as change per se (e. g. accounting) while today's GIS are mostly concerned with the representation of static phenomena.
