Geographic information science: mastering the legal issues

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Geographic information (GI) and the law is a subject worthy of study. GI systems began as a tool for map making and automating cartography, but have since evolved to become an information system in their own right. GI systems have broken new ground, not only in supplying map products, but also augmented services that accompany those products. In today`s world it would be rare that GI and systems that drive it remain in the background where geospartial data are used. Everywhere one looks today, from the hand-held mobile phone, to the use of credit cards, the electronic tags on our cars to facilitate paying road tolls or to open electronic gates, and swipe cards that permit travel on commuter mass transit systems, an information system is all to pervasive.
