Abstract

GIS and the technological family associated with them raise important questions with respect to the issue of privacy. The systems store and represent data in ways that render ineffective the most popular safeguards against privacy abuse. Their use in the creation of data profiles supports a wide-ranging reconceptualization of community, place and individual. In the ways they create and use digital profiles, the systems do offer suggestions for a partial remedy to the problems that they have created
