Pertinent issues of geographical information systems as technology, science and engineering are revisited sequentially using the metaphor of the peg, clothes hanger and valet stand. These three organisational phases map out the development of the GI domain and in particular the emergence of a science. The view put forward in the paper is that we are on the threshold of the third phase when a mature science emerges to influence both the technology and engineering aspects. From an educational perspective, a clearer view of the domain and its constituent parts is required. A linguistic model is proposed for wider discussion, that attempts to bring together the identities of GI as science, engineering and technology and give coherence to educational programmes.
