Chapter 2

Location and Space

The book proper starts with a look at what many consider geography’s key distinctive focus, namely space. This is often, in more GIS-adjacent settings understood as location, which led me directly to Whitehead’s arresting dismissal of simple location as an idea, something to which we return in Chapter 8. This chapter considers geographical theories about space and how space is—and potentially could be—represented in giscience. Many of the figures relate to some of the more interesting ways in which giscience represents space.
