Edition : 2nd edition
Overview Geographical Information Systems, 2nd edition is designed to give a sound introduction to GIS for students with little or no knowledge of the subject. Using real world examples, this new edition provides a concise introduction to the theory and practice of GIS. Interviews are included throughout the text with people using GIS beyond academia. These interviewees provide succinct opinions of the complexities of the field and comment on the real-world issues. This is designed to get students interested in the theory because they can see the real-world application. In a field which is typically heavy in the use of software specific labels and terminology, the simplicity of this text is designed for the applied GIS user rather than the technical, computing science GIS population. The text is ideal for students new to GIS and does not assume prior knowledge. The book is structured to provide a cumulative learning experience and gradually leads the student through the subject matter. There is a strong pedagogical focus with new examples with new GIS application and Australian stories and interviews included to add insight to the modern GIS direction.
