Chippenham: John Wiley & Sons. – 2005. – 305 p. Re-presenting GIS in the third in a series of edited volumes, stretching back to 1994, that share a common format and approach. Visualization in Geographical Information Systems (Hearnshaw and Unwin, 1994) established the style and this was followed in 2002 by Virtual Reality in Geography (Fisher and Unwin, 2002). These volumes are alike in three respects. First, all have a content that sits, according to taste, at the interface between academic geography and computer science or in the now well-established and mature ﬁeld of geographic information science. Second, although all have been edited collections, the temptation to produce yet another set of vaguely connected solicited conference papers has in each case been avoided by use of a more collaborative approach. This involved the use of a residential seminar/workshop extending over several days at which all the individual chapter authors were present to discuss each other’s contributions and, critically, to work as teams to produce the scene-setting introductions to each section of the ﬁnal book. Individual chapters were also revised in the light of the formal and informal discussions. Third, this approach must have some initial support.
