Immediately following the founding of the college Consortium for Geographic info technology (UCGIS), the gang pointed out in a study time table the subjects that represented significant demanding situations to the GIS study neighborhood. the 1st bankruptcy of this booklet promises an advent to the schedule and to the collective assistance that the time table presents to researchers.

Chapters 2-10 speak about 9 unique examine demanding situations. Chapters 11-14 give you the foundation of the agenda's 4 "Emerging Themes." each one bankruptcy, written by way of researchers interested in the perception of the themes, discusses easy examine parts, the UCGIS process, the necessity for the nationwide study schedule, contributions to wisdom and society, and gives a whole set of references.
