Geographic information science is an emerging field that combines aspects of many different disciplines. As a result, GIScience literature is spread widely across the academic spectrum, textbooks tend to have specific disciplinary orientations, and the vocabulary is an amalgam of all of these fields. Often, given the specialized disciplinary orientations of authors, some expectation of foundational knowledge is assumed in much of the literature, making it difficult for readers from different disciplines to understand the full context of what they are reading.
The Encyclopedia of Geographic Information Science provides condensed but rich information about themes broadly across the field, in an A-Z format.
