Introduction to GIS&T BoK2.0

The GIS&T Body of Knowledge, first published in 2006, is intended as a reference and curricula guide for the vast and ever-expanding field of geographic information science and technology. It is organized in to knowledge areas, each with constituent units and lists of topics. Please refer to the BoK for more details on its background, purpose and content.
Currently efforts to revise the BoK are underway and follow a two-part strategy: 1. evaluating the importance and relevance of the existing material, 2. suggesting new and/or refined content. Two surveys have been developed for this purpose and are described and available here on the UCGIS website.

Collaborative Feedback from the CyberGIS Team

While all CyberGIS team members are encouraged to fill out these surveys, this Wiki page is intended to support a group dialog about knowledge areas, units and topics through the lens of CyberGIS. To support the transfer of the results of this dialog to the BoK2.0 steering committee, it is structured in a similar way to the surveys.

Importance and Relevance of Existing Material

The current BoK has 329 topics, organized across the ten knowledge areas as follows:

  • AM Analytical Methods (12 units; 59 topics)
  • CF Conceptual Foundations (6 units; 30 topics)
  • CV Cartography & Visualization (6 units; 27 topics)
  • DA Design Aspects (5 units; 32 topics)
  • DM Data Modeling (3 units; 23 topics)
  • DN Data Manipulation (3 units; 14 topics)
  • GC Geocomputation (9 units; 40 topics)
  • GD Geospatial Data (12 units; 47 topics)
  • GS GIS&T and Society (7 units; 25 topics)
  • OI Organizational and Institutional Aspects (6 units; 32 topics)

Instructions

The survey either takes you through all 329 topics or selects a random group of 60. In our case we can self-select which topics we want to discuss (the survey allows this too, but you have to click through all of the topics to find what you want to comment upon). For whatever topics you wish, please include the following information:
0. Your name (you may also add your name to someone else's description if you agree)
1. Topic name, for example "AM1-1 Academic foundations"
2. Rate the importance of topic within GIS&T in 2014: 5 point scale (1-5, low to high relevance or 0 for 'No longer relevant')
3. Rate the description of topic: needs rewriting, needs updating, satisfactory as written, superb as written
