Geographic Information free pdf The history and future of geographic information (GI) in the context of big data create new avenues of concern over its organization, access, and use. In this 10 chapter book the authors explore both the background and present challenges facing the preservation of GI focusing on 1). The roles of librarians, archivists, data scientists, and other information professionals in the creation of GI records for its organization, access, and use- 2). Geospatial data discovery, geographic information policy, metadata creation- and 3). Beyond current technology and data formats to long-term preservation. This book argues that the maintenance of GI created through metadata is critical to the making GI findable to reduce duplication of creation and advance scholarship more quickly.

About Tony Grubesic

Bradley Wade Bishop's intellectual contributions focus on how geographic information is used by information consumers, particularly those using geographic information systems (GIS). Bishop's major accomplishments bridge domains and provide understanding between stakeholders as demonstrated by his 23 peer-reviewed publications and research on a number of projects totaling over $2.55 million. Bishop's background in library and information science prepared him to work more efficiently in retrieving geographic information and organizing project data with metadata, but he also became acutely aware of geographic information management problems facing data curators and other GIS users. These problems led him to further explore the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI), Federal Geographic Data Committee metadata, and other related geographic information policies. Seeing the great potential benefit of library and information science to organize geographic information, Bishop focused on training a new wave of geographic information professionals. In 2011, he received an IMLS grant titled Geographic Information Librarianship (GIL), with co-PI Professor Tony H. Grubesic, Ph.D. (Drexel University), to create and deliver coursework to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to locate, retrieve, analyze, and make geospatial data accessible. Tony H. Grubesic is a Professor in the College of Computing and Informatics and Director of the Center for Spatial Analytics and Geocomputation at Drexel University. He is also a Research Affiliate at the GeoDa Center for Geospatial Analysis and Computation at Arizona State University and an adjunct professor of Geography at Indiana University - Bloomington. His research and teaching interests are in geographic information science, regional development and public policy evaluation. Author of over 100 research publications, his recent work focuses on critical infrastructure vulnerability, broadband deployment in the United States, air transportation systems and geographic information librarianship.
