The three papers contained in this report address different aspects of the problem of formalizing human communication about geographic space. Much of this thought grew out of the National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis’s Research Initiative #2,"Languages of Spatial Relations". Each of these papers were presented at a NATO Advanced Study Institute on Cognitive and Linguistic Aspects of Geographic Space, held in Las Navas del Marques, Spain, during July 1990. The meeting was directed by David Mark and coordinated by Andrew Frank. These papers will appear in a volume resulting from the meeting. They are being published as an NCGIA technical report to make them accessible before they are published and printed in that volume.
