Obviously there are still open questions that can only be answered by further practical experience. Examples of such problems are:
  1. 1.

    Should the component-based approach of systems architecture also be used to let the geoscientist “tailor” her/his own GIS with freely configurable components? Is this realistic?

  2. 2.

    How can the spatial and temporal techniques of database access be used for the support of picture and raster-based multi media applications? How can the object-based access be realized to achieve the access to a specified target in an animation or in a video sequence?
