Abstract: We ask how research agendas of Geographic Information Science should reflect the ubiquitous discussions and developments on Spatial Data Infrastructures (SDI). Many research issues surrounding geographic information remain unresolved and are equally relevant in SDI settings. More interestingly, however, a host of GI research questions are different in the SDI context or have only arisen in it. The literature has so far discussed them from either technical or social perspectives, but no integrated view exists to our knowledge. We attempt it by combining our specializations in the technology, people, and content dimensions of SDI with a joint perspective on the “science behind SDI”, as embodied in the Vespucci initiative.
