  • New chapters on Distributed GIS, Map Production, Geovisualization, Modeling, and Managing GIS
  • All-new personality boxes of current GIS practitioners

The second edition of Geographic Information Systems and Science is essential reading for undergraduates taking courses in GIS within departments of Geography, Environmental Science, Business (and Public) Administration, Computer Science, Urban Studies, Planning, Information Science, Civil Engineering, and Archaeology. It is also provides a key resource for foundation GIS courses on taught MSc and other higher-degree programs. Where courses are highly modular, this book will support not only the technology and environmental elements but will give a business, managerial and societal context – and show how these tie together, no one element being of value if seen as ‘an island’. Professional users of GIS from governmental organizations and industries across the private sector will find this book an invaluable resource with a wealth of relevant applications.

Review:

“One of the nicest features is the book’s accessibility ... this is a must-have reference guide for all newcomers to the field, be they students or professionals.” (GISProfessional, July / August 2005)
