'Geographical information science' is not merely a technical subject but also poses theoretical questions on the nature of geographic representation and whether there exist limits on the ability of GI systems to deal with certain objects and issues. This book presents the debate surrounding technical GIS and theory of representation from an 'inside' GIS perspective. Chapters are authored by leading researchers from a range of fields including geographers, planners, ecologists and computer scientists from Europe and North America.

"It would be a pity if this valuable collection of essays were left to an academic audience alone ... definitely relevant for the professionals too." (GIS Professional, March/April 2006) "This book is a welcome addition to the GIS literature for researchers and practitioners." (The Geographical Journal 2006)
