Recent advances in information technology have changed the way geographical data were originally produced and made available. Nowadays, the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is not reserved anymore to the specialized user. GISs are emerging as a common information infrastructure, which penetrates into more and more aspects of our society. The technological drift implies a profound change in mentality, with a deep impact on the way geographical data needs to be conceptualized. New methodological and data engineering challenges must be confronted by GIS researchers in the near future in order to accommodate new users’ requirements for new applications.

Abstract

Recent advances in information technology have changed the way geographical data were originally produced and made available. Nowadays, the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is not reserved anymore to the specialized user. GISs are emerging as a common information infrastructure, which penetrates into more and more aspects of our society. The technological drift implies a profound change in mentality, with a deep impact on the way geographical data needs to be conceptualized. New methodological and data engineering challenges must be confronted by GIS researchers in the near future in order to accommodate new users’ requirements for new applications.
