Abstract

The status of GIS integration is reviewed, with emphasis on dynamic, physically based modelling approaches that integrate the effects of different environmental processes across multiple scales. The first steps have been taken toward more tightly linked approaches, including embedded modelling within the GIS. Integrated multidisciplinary modelling has created new opportunities for GIS, but has also exposed the weaknesses of the current generation of GIS technology, particularly in areas of functionality and data modelling. -Authors
