Thepower and speed of such a tool in planning, research and managingspatial databases is invaluable. However, it is becomingincreasingly apparent that the legal implications of GIS are asconvoluted as those raised by the Internet. This is alreadybecoming a field which is stretching legal systems around the worldto their limit. Users, practitioners, developers, and custodians ofdata need a clear guide. This book, avoiding technological andlegal jargon, clarifies the issues of the rights, limitations, andresponsibilities of GIS.
