Miller and Shaw are back in the house! A new paper by the team that brought you Geographic Information Systems for Transportation: Principles and Applications (Oxford Press):
Abstract: Geographic Information Systems for Transportation: Principles and Applications (Miller and Shaw 2001) remains the only major authored text on the interdisciplinary field of Geographic Information Systems for Transportation (GIS-T). However, Miller and Shaw (2001) is a product of the 20th century, and the fields of GIS, transportation and GIS-T have changed dramatically in the early 21st century. We are witnessing a revolution in transportation and urban sciences, fueled by a stunning advancement in capabilities to capture, store and process data, as well as communicate information and knowledge derived from these data. This paper is a review of GIS-T in the 20th and 21st centuries. Using Miller and Shaw (2001) as a touchstone, we discuss elements of GIS-T that have stood the test of time as well as new technologies and ideas that an updated GIS-T canon should include.
