Abstract

This book seeks to enhance research on space-time integration in geography and GIScience and bring together two major clusters of research activity in this rapidly growing field. Juxtaposing work side by side from the US and China, it sets the stage for new collaborative/joint research progress, uniting the strengths of each country in synergistic ways. In part this book also is a first step in developing “shared language” regarding complex concepts related to space-time integration research. Chinese and U.S. terminology and approaches to space and time concepts and their integration in GIScience research draw from distinct deeply established cultural, historical, and scientific traditions and foundations.
