Psychogeography and GIS

Psychogeographers don’t seem to get much attention from us quantitative geographers.

Given that GIS can provide tools for prediction and that predictability has been shown to greatly mitigate the effects of stress, it seems like pyschogeographers could use GIS tools to make the landscape more predictable.
Instead of worrying about “unimaginative urban landscapes“, maybe psychogeographers should think of ways to make life less stressful in places like Baghdad and New Orleans.
