UCGIS BoK2 Report

In 2013 the University Consortium for Geographic Information Science (UCGIS) launched an initiative to create a second edition of the GIS&T BoK. A series of group discussions was organized during the May 2014 UCGIS Symposium that aimed to clarify the content and kinds of fundamental knowledge, tools, and applications that comprise the GIS&T domain in 2014. Prior to the Symposium, two surveys were organized in which participants were asked to evaluate the importance of the topics included in the first edition of the GIS&T BoK, to review the existing descriptions of these topics and to propose new topics for inclusion in the GIS&T BoK 2.0. The report describing the results of the discussions and the two surveys is now available on the UCGIS website.
