  2. How can people participate in Map Stories?  

Allen:  We'd love people's ideas about new topics, new or hidden data sources, interesting GIS work that begs to be shared with a wider audience. We need people to criticize us too. We also, by the way, want to do more to involve our audiences: to enable users to share their own location information, photos, and opinions. Now that so many of us walk around with location-enabled devices, we should be engaging people in new ways, and recruiting them as authors and contributors to Map Stories.

The STEP Model

a diagram of the STEP model

In the real world, space is vital. Yet, for a century and a half, science has been dominated by specialized disciplines that routinely ignore geographic space. Process is, of course, the Holy Grail of science, and understanding space is essential to the discovery and explanation of real-world processes.


The space, time, entity, and process (STEP) model envisions a future science more closely aligned with the real world. The new spatially enabled science also implies increased scientific integration across entities and disciplines both physical and cultural; improved connections to real-world entities through GIS, remote sensing, popular geographics, and fieldwork; and greater emphasis on place-based research.
