"Geospatial Solutions for Development: What, Where, When & Why?"
During development, both GIS engineers and GIS analysts use the same
methodology, standards and tools for project management, which allows
effective team cooperation. As a result, the teams are able to draw on
best practices from a diverse variety of disciplines and come up with a
solution that directly answers your needs.
Implicit purpose of geographic research is to seek:
Theoretical explanations of increasing higher order of efficiency for intricate & complex pattern of spatial phenomena and spatial variations (Amedeo & Golledge, 1975)
Account for spatial facts or sets of spatial facts.
Use theories & models to systematise knowledge.
Derive spatial laws to establish the order or pattern(s)
