GeoComputation may be a research paradigm still in the making, but it has the potential to dramatically change current research practice in the spatial sciences. Different people, however, have different views of this research paradigm. For some it is synonymous with geographical information systems [GIS]. But GeoComputation is not GIS. There does exist a relationship with GIS, defined as geographical information science, but GeoComputation has other relationships too that are just as important, for example, with computer science, pattern recognition and statistics, neurocomputing and computational intelligence technologies.
