GIS (geographic information system) is a totally cool technology that has been called “geography on steroids.” GIS is what lets you see the schools in your neighborhood or tells you where the nearest McDonald’s is. GIS For Dummies tells you all about mapping terminology and digital mapping, how to locate geographic features and analyze patterns such as streets and waterways, and how to generate travel directions, customer location lists, and much more with GIS.

  • Learn all the hardware and software necessary to collect, analyze, and manipulate GIS data

  • Recognize how spatial factors relate to geographic data
  • Discover how GIS is used in business, the military, city planning, emergency services, land management, and more
