This document reports on the Center’s sixth full year of operation (Dec 1993 - Dec 1994). Four research initiatives were completed: Spatial Decision Support Systems; Visualizing the Quality of Spatial Information; Integration of Remote Sensing and GIS; and User Interfaces for GIS. One major new research initiative was begun, on Law, Policy, and Spatial Databases; and a second was in the advanced stages of planning for its specialist meeting on Multiple Roles for GIS in U.S. Global Change Research). Education programs continued to be directed to K-12, with teacher workshops and the development of instructional materials, and a new initiative promoting GIS in community colleges began. The Center held its first Summer Institute for researchers. The program of collaboration with the European Science Foundation’s GISDATA program was in full swing, and planning began for a 1995 joint summer institute with the Europeans in Maine. All of the developments are reviewed in this report.
