New Esri Course Book Emphasizes Real-World Lessons

Redlands, CaliforniaJuly 18, 2011—Designed for a college curriculum, Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS: A Workbook helps students use organized workflows, spatial analysis, and visualization to make decisions about real-world issues including crime, hazards, hurricanes, demographics, and urban planning. This second edition from Esri Press provides scenario-based lessons to promote the development of GIS skills and critical thinking capabilities.

"One major difference between this workbook and others is the focus on the GIS workflow—documenting and being systematic about the problem-solving process," says coauthor Robert Kolvoord. "Following a consistent GIS workflow is an important part of becoming a GIS professional."

The companion DVD contains the GIS data, worksheets, and other documents needed to complete projects in the book. Information about online resources and instructions to download a trial version of ArcGIS Desktop 10 are also provided. The first edition, authored by Kathryn Keranen and Kolvoord, was part of the Esri Press Our World GIS Education book series, which won the 2008 Geographic Excellence in Media Award from the National Council for Geographic Education.
