Zusammenfassung

Die zunehmende Verbreitung von Geographischen Informationssystemen (GIS) in der sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschung als Analysewerkzeug und als Forschungsperspektive erfordert es, die theoretischen Grundlagen sowie die methodologischen Rahmenbedingungen zu erläutern. Da dies in aktuellen Lehrbüchern der Humangeographie nur marginal getan wird, zielt dieser Beitrag darauf ab, GIS als Analysewerkzeug im Zuge von mixed-method-Ansätzen zu thematisieren und gleichzeitig aber auch die vielfältigen Möglichkeiten von GIS-Praktiken als Forschungsperspektive zu erörtern. Dabei geht es einerseits um die technischen Grundlagen, aber auch um grundlegende epistemologische und methodologische Fragen im Kontext humangeographischer Forschung.
