This paper was first written in 1994. At the time a paradigm shift in Information Technology (IT) was beginning to take place as documented in summary by Business Week, on October 25, 1993, in the article by Don Tapscott - “Paradigm Shift: How Information Technology is Reinventing the Enterprise”. Through the years the basic premises established in the original paper have prevailed. We continue in essence to be moved by “The Power of I®” and with that, a new wave of spatially enabled Internet Services (Is-Net.Net®). But there is quite a significant amount of work do be done in the area of spatial semantics and spatial ontologies. We are now on the road towards the automation of cognitive processes for classification and information generation.
