Questions??
26
Storytime
  • An aviatrix was piloting a hot air balloon. She
    ran into some unexpected weather and was blown
    about for a long time. When the weather cleared,
    and she was able to descend, she had no idea
    where she was.

27
As she came down, she saw someone immediately
below her and yelled, Where am I?
You are 75 feet above my head.
28
You must be an economist.
Because what you have just told me is
perfectly accurate, but perfectly useless!
How did you know?!?
29
Moral of the Story...
  • Location, no matter how precisely specified, is
    sterile in and of itself.
  • Context determines whether or not knowledge of
    location is invaluable. . . .
  • -- Ron Abler, former executive director of the
  • Association of American Geographers

GIS is not about systems anymore. It is about
geography. ( and about geographic
