On July 19-22, the National Center for Geographical Information and Analysis held the specialist Meeting of the Research Initiative on Very Large Spatial Databases (VLSDB) at Santa Barbara, CA. At this workshop, 42 participants from the U.S. and Europe discussed research issues related to the design of database management systems for geographic information systems and identified a long-term research agenda germane to the development of the next generation of geographic information systems. This paper summarizes the discussions that took place.
