Welcome to the GIS&T Body of Knowledge!

This Body of Knowledge documents the domain of geographic information science and its associated technologies (GIS&T). By providing this content in a new digital format, UCGIS aims to continue supporting the GIS&T higher education community and its connections with the practitioners, employers, and clients who comprise the increasingly diverse collection of GIS&T professions. This version is built entirely and directly from the first GIS&T Body of Knowledge, published in 2006. New and revised content - as Topics - will be continually added as we go forward, though at this early point the vast majority of the Topics are the original ones. For more information about this project, please see our FAQ section

Being a steward of the GIS&T Body of Knowledge is part of the mission of UCGIS: to expand and strengthen education and research with and about Geographic Information Science at many levels. Many individuals and groups have contributed to this effort over the years and we thank them for their hard work and dedication.
