Another way to analyze the composition of integrated geons is to calculate the Shannon index (SI) (Shannon and Weaver 1949) as a measure of entropy (Figure 7).
For comparing the two types of geons introduced in this paper, we follow the seven-stage semantic hierarchy for geographic information constructs introduced by (Couclelis 2010) (see Figure 8).
Composite geons operate in the geo-object domain (Goodchild, Yuan, and Cova 2007).
Integrated geons remain in the field object domain, yet operating in granular space using a preemptive discrete field-based model (Mark 1999; Voudouris 2010).
The semiautomated delineation of geons using expert-based production systems ensures repeatability under similar conditions.
From a data model point of view, the generated geons are areal objects.
Both types of geons are built around theoretical frameworks that need to be conceptualized and operationalized: composite geons use mapping keys including particular instructions on composition and structure (very much like an entity-based ontology), integrated geons employ a conceptual framework that de-/composes the latent multidimensional phenomena.
With respect to MAUP, we argue that the mapping of a spatial composite indicator using integrated geons is embedded in a conceptual framework.
We extended the geon concept by presenting two types of geons, composite and integrated geons.

Characteristics of composite geons on BTC and BB level, not considering class 'other' (BTC = biotope complex, BB = building block, ha = hectares).
We utilize the geon approach in two ways to accomplish domain-specific (i.e., expert-based) and semiautomated regionalization.
