The previous two decades could be considered as the early life of geographic details technology (GIS), because it grew from a burgeoning quarter of analysis right into a mature and thriving box. in the course of these 20 years, the foreign magazine of Geographic info technology (formerly platforms) (IJGIS) used to be some of the most widespread educational guiding forces in GIScience, and appears to stay so for the foreseeable destiny. To rejoice this crucial milestone, Peter Fisher-the moment editor of IJGIS-has compiled 19 of the main major and influential articles ever released within the magazine. Classics from IJGIS: two decades of the foreign magazine of Geographical details technology and platforms includes articles that formed the way in which we technique the technology of GIS, supplied seeds from which grew key advancements that experience molded the sector, opened new avenues of discovery around the panorama of recent GIScience, and a few that could mark the way it will swap sooner or later. Accompanying approximately each article is a remark written via at the least one of many unique authors. In those commentaries, the authors consider a variety of features of the unique paintings, together with what drove their unique examine, why the options have been generally followed (or sometimes, why not), and what the longer term may possibly carry for brand new study embarking on those and comparable components. the twentieth article during this assortment is an unique contribution that examines the social and collaborative networks working inside of and shaping the physique of analysis within the box.

Gathering a group of enthusiastic and like-minded researchers together, the development of GAM continued; this included a web interface and developments of GAM to deal with space-time data, and the use of genetic algorithms in pattern search. However, these are but a part of the corpus of activity that has taken place in the CCG. The CCG continues an active programme of research into spatial analysis and modelling, “and is concerned with the development and application of tools for analysing, visualising and modelling geographical systems ” (CCG, 2005).

In this paper we review the prospects of computer-assisted generalization of spatial data. We first consider the general character of generalization (§ 2) and then present a conceptual framework for generalization of map data (§ 3). We follow this with a review of recent research activities (§ 4) and draw some conclusions on future developments (§ 5). 2 Generalization as a human activity Map generalization is one of the central concepts in map design. A map is a generalized, simplified abstraction of reality.
