4421. What are the Grand Challenges of Geographic Information Science

Co-sponsored by GI Systems & Science, Cyberinfrastructure, Spatial Analysis & Modeling


What are grand challenges

What are Grand Challenges?

  • are extremely hard to do, yet are do-able

  • produce outcomes potentially affecting millions, if not hundreds of millions of people

  • require multiple research projects across many subdisciplines in order to be satisfactorily addressed

  • consist of well-defined metrics such that, through creativity and commitment, can be realistically met and one knows the end has been reached

  • capture the popular imagination, and thus political support

Grand Challenges in GIScience??

  • Finish Digital Earth by 2015!

  • Create digital simulations of geographic phenomena indistinguishable from real counterparts!

  • Map or visualize all uncertainties!

  • Find all appropriate data no matter how hidden!

Grand Challenges in GIScience??

  • What is the cost to the nation of geographic information that is inaccurate, overaccurate or out-of-date?

  • What role can geographic technologies play in eliminating geographic illiteracy?

  • In what ways have we yet to exploit the superiority of digital maps over paper maps?

  • By how much can effective use of geographic information improve human safety and welfare while reducing the associated costs?
