Changing Geography


“The advent of computers as information processing tools and the development of GIS have measurably assisted geographers in their work. These new tools are being added to the discipline. Just as the advent of the telescope by Galileo increased the knowledge of the heavens and the concepts of space and the advent of the microscope revolutionized biology with its ability to add resolution and depth to inquiry, so the advent of the tools of GIS has impacted the discipline of geography.”

Roger F. Tomlinson, the “father of GIS”
