This paper discusses the status of geographic information systems (GIS) research in the fields of MIS. To do this, we define the technology as it relates to the IS field. We then discuss the research that has been done in other disciplines to study this technology. Finally, we present an outline of the research topics pertaining to GIS that appear to be of relevance to the IS field.
