The chapter aims at drawing attention to the possibilities that geospatial technologies can bring to science mapping. The chapter briefly distinguishes the notion of mapping between the geospatial information science (GIScience) and librarianship and information science (LIS). Afterwards, an overview of recent initiatives and research work relative to (geospatial) mapping of science is presented. Based on these examples, opportunities and challenges of applying geospatial technology to science mapping are discussed. Finally, based on relevant while evolving geospatial technologies, the next steps for increasing the influence of geospatial technology in science mapping are pointed out.
