Title
Will your library be the spatial data information center of the future?

Abstract
Vast amounts of data about the Earth and man's activities are being entered into digital spatial data bases. These have been structured so thet they are described in terms of their exact geographic position on the Earth. The data, in the form of points, lines, or polygons, can descrive geology, soils, water, forest cover, or population statistics. To use this data, geographic information systems (GIS) are being developed to collect, inventory manage, and display the spatially referenced data sets, Because the library has been the centre for published information through time and is the one place where all disciplines can truly live together, people will expect to find spatial data there also. The biggest problem establishing this type of library system may be in just getting approval to start.
