Fighting Words

  • Similarly, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) offer dramatic new means to analyze spatiality, even if these are often drenched in empiricist and positivist epistemologies [emphasis added]. GIS, therefore, is not simply reflective of the new importance of space, but also constitutive of it. (Warf and Arias, eds. 2008)

Fighting Words

  • As Richard White explains, “GIS often ends up emphasizing not the constructed-ness of space but rather its given-ness, which is fine if you are setting out to bomb something or go out to eat.” The technology shows its limitations, however, when the purpose is to understand “a wider spectrum of human constructions of space over time.” (http://toolingup.stanford.edu/?page_id=1167, accessed 05/12/2013)
