SIGGIS Welcome

Welcome to the AIS Special Interest Group on Geographic Information Systems (SIGGIS)

Scope and Mission
  • The scope of SIGGIS is to discuss, develop ideas and promote research, stimulate curriculum and teaching, and dialogue on the role of spatial information systems, technologies and concepts, as applied to management of information systems, business intelligence (BI), decision support systems (DSS), and knowledge management (KM).

  • The mission of SIGGIS is to be a forum that brings together members of AIS. Although there is considerable research on GIS technology and geographic information science, there has been relatively little research in management of spatial information systems, and spatial-based business intelligence, DSS, and KM. SIGGIS will address gaps that involve the GIS and spatial aspects of these knowledge areas and incorporate the expertise the IS discipline can bring to bear on them.
