Issue No. 02 - April-June (2003 vol. 2)
<p>This invited, non-peer-reviewed piece summarizes a report entitled IT Roadmap to a Geospatial Future, which was recently published by the US National Research Council. The lead author, Cynthia Patterson, was the NRC study director for the report. Dick Muntz chaired the committee that produced the report, and committee member Cherri Pancake led the integration of report components into a cohesive whole. I asked the authors to summarize those aspects of the report most relevant to pervasive computing. Our goal in publishing this summary is to interest you in reading the full NRC report at www.cstb.org/project_geospatial.html.<div>--M. Satyanarayanan</div></p>
