【Abstract】

"People, places, and the practice of geographic information science"

At the core of geographic information science lie enduring organising principles and concepts that have developed using research methods that are robust, transparent, and scientifically reproducible. Yet it is also a science of real world problem-solving, which has come to prominence at a time in which the nature, volume and known provenance of geographic information (as well as the human activities that generate it) is profoundly changing. The first part of this presentation reflects upon these changes and the challenges that they present to GIScience, using examples taken from the three editions of the ‘Geographic Information Systems and Science’ textbook. The second part of the presentation develops some of these arguments in the context of ‘geodemographics’ – the analysis of people by where they live – and describes an extensive quantitative analysis of the naming practices used to identify people and places across the globe. Our conclusions speculate about relevance of naming practices in linking real and virtual identities, and their strategic importance in facilitating generalisations about social systems.
