Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This short paper has been provoked by the ideas and opinions contained in the paper by J. Bański entitled What form of geography ? – determining factors and future outlooks. While J. Bański has almost completely overlooked the relationship between geography and GIS and Technology (GIS&T), it is argued here that this relationships is vital to the future of geography. The A. of this paper claims that GIS may offer a valuable theoretical background to geography seen as a science with a clear spatial identity. Equally critical for geography and geographers, geographic information technologies have undergone rapid development recently, due to a number of activities on the national, European or global scales. The latter include the setting up of spatial information infrastructure. Importantly, the technologies in question are being used more and more frequently by geographers in their everyday research work. The A. concludes that the relationship between geography and GIS&T should be perceived as an opportunity which cannot be wasted. He further espouses high-quality geographical education as one of the ways in which full advantage of the latter can be taken. – (BJ)
