Given the increased use of GIS the aim of this article is to review the current role and limitations of GIS use in hydrology. Initially the various approaches that have been adopted already to capture the spatial characteristics of a hydrological study area are outlined. This is followed by a synthesis of the current state of GIS and the models used to conceptualize spatial data within such systems. The suitability of such models for application to hydrological research is then emphasized
