This book focuses on the relationship between geographic information systems and society. Since the early 1970s, Nicholas Chrisman has been one of the pioneers in the field of GIS. Over the years, the technology's sophistication has continued to increase. It is now a dominant technology in both geography and demography. Chrisman situates GIS in broader social relations, showing how this technology operates in a broader context than many of its practitioners suppose. In doing so, he shows that science is not neutral.
