The above is a good definition, however, one key element I feel is missing is that most magicians will attune their temple/practice space to the nature of the spirit being called upon. It is not just a matter of bringing the spirit to the magician, but the magician tuning the environment in a sense so that the atmosphere of the room is resonant with the nature of the spirit.
I would also argue evocation proper takes place etherically, there is usually a physical medium for scrying.
Invocation whilst often assumed to be with a specific deity can also just be energy, there are varying degrees of invocation, with full blown channelling/horsing being one of the more extreme forms.
