The current need in social indicator modeling is a general framework for socio-environmental inquiry. This is consistent with John Dewey's advice on social measurement given more than forty years ago. This article will follow Marcus Felson's advice to develop socio-environmental accounts based on "map, clock, and calendar."' This can be accomplished by combining the social fabric matrix with temporal sequencing and geobased data systems.
