Found inWork cat: Societal challenges and geoinformatics, 2011: Preface ("The fusion of informatics technologies with geoscience-based data and tools signals a necessary change in the way we manage the future of our science. It has become abundantly clear that for data to be useful, it must exist without borders and allow scientists, educators, and decision makers to use it freely and easily...Therefore, geoinformatics can be considered as an agent for making our data and products useful to the public at large.")
Geoinformatics : data to knowledge, 2006: Preface ("With the emergence of large storage devices and high-speed processing of data, it has become possible to organize vast amounts of data as digital products with ontological tags and concepts for smart queries. Coupling this computational capability with earth science data defines the emerging field of geoinformatics.")
Wikipedia, viewed September 24, 2015: Geoinformatics ("Geoinformatics is the science and the technology which develops and uses information science infrastructure to address the problems of geography, cartography, geosciences and related branches of science and engineering... Geoinformatics combines geospatial analysis and modeling, development of geospatial databases, information systems design, human-computer interaction and both wired and wireless networking technologies.")
