Abstract

Future projections, based on current trends, suggest that the number of GIS systems installed will pass the 0.5 million mark before the end of this millennium. Substantial technical developments can also be anticipated, along with a diversification of applications and much-needed advances in understanding the introduction of GIS into organizations. Together, these should assist us in our corporate goal of describing, explaining and predicting Earth patterns and processes with a view to managing the environment, improving human welfare and sustaining our existence in general. -from Author
