Workbook Details Steps in Completing Full-Scale GIS Analysis

Redlands, California— June 30, 2011—A new book from Esri Press, Understanding GIS: An ArcGIS Project Workbook, explains the methods, tools, and processes needed to apply full-scale GIS analysis to a spatially based problem. Readers are guided through a hypothetical project of selecting a suitable location for a park near the Los Angeles River in California.

"This book provides the starting data and guidance you need to perform a complete GIS analysis including how to explore the study area, evaluate the data, and build a database; process, edit, and analyze the data; model outcomes; map your findings; and share your results on interactive web maps," said Christian Harder, who coauthored the book with Tim Ormsby and Thomas Balstrøm.

Understanding GIS: An ArcGIS Project Workbook contains valuable learning materials including

  • Self-paced tutorials
  • ArcGIS Desktop 10 software
  • Access to the online Understanding GIS Resource Center

The premise for the project presented in the book parallels the recent history of the Los Angeles River. In 2005, Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced the Los Angeles River Revitalization Master Plan, which details the redevelopment of the waterway into wildlife and recreation area pockets from its current state as a flood control channel.
