Abstract: Geographic modeling has its origins in the 1950s and 1960s where it was introduced as part of the application to scientific method to study problems of geographic form and process. Many ideas have been borrowed from other disciplines and the success of modeling was questioned in the 1970s and 1980s. The advent of geographical information systems (GIS) has re-focused modeling and there are a number of guidelines proposed for the future of the model in geography.
