Four interacting aspects of a geological survey knowledge system
Loudon, T.V.. 2009 Four interacting aspects of a geological survey knowledge system. Computers & Geosciences, 35 (4). 700-705. 10.1016/j.cageo.2007.12.009Before downloading, please read NORA policies.
The developing cyberinfrastructure affects the knowledge system by which geological surveys collect, represent and communicate their knowledge, and thereby influences their view of the geology. Consequences for four interacting aspects of the overall system (infrastructure, business models, geological framework and surveying methods) are outlined. Although each reflects a different area of expertise, all aspects must work together to support an incipient change of emphasis in survey work—from publishing maps and supporting documents, to contributing to a whole-Earth knowledge system that responds flexibly to user needs.
