Spatial analysis, which emerged as the dominant geographical paradigm during the 1960s, was quickly eclipsed not simply through its inability to deal with deeper structures and processes but because of its inability to deal with questions of bounded space. In this paper, the limits that spatial analysis and its newer approaches through geographic information systems (GIS) pose are examined; and contemporary views of geographical space that build on localisation and globalisation, and on time-space compression, are considered.
