Abstract

The GIS phenomenon shows no sign of weakening, but cannot last for ever. The paper addresses the long-term significance of GIS from three perspectives. First, the various application fields are reviewed and used to define four views of GIS. Second, the paper looks at some new and continuing debates in GIS and their significance for cartography. The third section of the paper discusses the search for an intellectual core for GIS, and the role of the US National Science Foundation's National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis.
