dc.description.abstract The first international conference on `GeoComputation', hosted by the Department of Geography at the University of Leeds in 1996, heralded the launch of a new research agenda in geographical analysis (Openshaw and Abrahart 1996). A measure of the interest generated in this field is that the conference has become established as a yearly event (Otago, New Zealand, 1997; Bristol, UK, 1998) and will be held in Virginia, USA in 1999 ( and in The Netherlands in 2000. Although there is certainly a reliance on computer science as an enabling technology, the term `geocomputation' is not intended as a synonym for GIS or spatial information theory Ð these being somewhat at odds with the original and ongoing vision. This editorial attempts to explain that vision, to describe the enabling technology in terms of what it offers geographical analysis and to outline some of the research questions that geocomputation faces. en
