Integrating models and geographical information systems

by
Roger Bivand and Anne Lucas

Introduction
Since geographic information systems (GIS) currently dominate our perception
of how computing and geography should interface, and since GeoComputation
(GC) is providing analysts of spatial phenomena with ever more powerful
computing tools, it may be helpful to examine the experience that has accrued
concerning links between them. Our examination is both empirical and
normative, and the reader may find it useful to repeat at least some of our
literature surveys, since new papers and articles are accumulating rapidly.
Searching on the key words ‘GIS’ and ‘model*’ or ‘integral*’, where ‘*’ is the
wild card, led to a wide range of hits both in ISI Science and Social Science
Citations Indices, and in OCLC-FirstSearch. These sources primarily contain
journal articles, while conference proceedings may be searched at the Ohio State
University GIS Master Bibliography Project, and more recently through the
web-sites of conference organizers, such as NCGIA and GISDATA in Europe.
Adding these resources to what we already knew about the issues involved, we
were able to scan the field for interesting regularities, trends, and citation
clustering. read more
