The history and future of geographic information (GI) in the context of big data creates new avenues of concern over its organization, access and use. In this book the authors explore both the background and present challenges facing the preservation of GI, focusing on the roles of librarians, archivists, data scientists, and other information professionals in the creation of GI records for its organization, access, and use.

His research focus is on geographic information (GI) organization, access and use, as well as the study of GI occupations, education, and training.

He has professional experience as an assistant professor, teacher, academic librarian, graduate research associate, teaching assistant, and instructor. In 2011, he received an IMLS grant titled Geographic Information Librarianship (GIL), with Tony Grubesic, to create and deliver coursework to prepare students with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to locate, retrieve, analyze, and make geospatial data accessible. Tony H. Grubesic is Professor of Policy Analytics at Arizona State University, where he is also Director of the Center for Spatial Reasoning & Policy Analytics. He has previously held academic appointments at Drexel University, Oregon State University, Indiana University and the University of Cincinnati. His research and teaching interests are in geographic information science, regional development and public policy evaluation. Author of over 120 research publications, his recent work focuses on spatial analytics and data uncertainty, neighborhood dynamics, telecommunications policy and air transportation systems.
