Abstract

A "Body of Knowledge" is a comprehensive inventory of the intellectual content that defines a field. Following the lead of such allied fields as Computer Science and Information Technology, a team of seven editors and over 70 contributors completed the first edition of Geographic Information Science and Technology Body of Knowledge (BoK 1/ e) in 2006. Specifying 329 individual topics in terms of over 1, 600 formal educational objectives, the BoK 1/e is designed for use by curriculum planners and evaluators, certification and accreditation bodies, current and prospective students, and geospatial professionals in government, industry, and academia.
