This comprehensive look at GIS doesn't overwhelm with
details, equations, or computer codes. Instead the author
interweaves the ideas of geographic inquiry and spatial
discovery, inviting readers to join in the excitement of
discovery as it takes place within the computerized world of
the digital GIS databases. After discussing spatial and
mapping concepts, the author sequentially addresses the
components of GIS systems. A final chapter spotlights the
process of designing and implementing a GIS system.
