Editorial Reviews
This landmark text captures and redefines the richness and diversity of GIS, in an accessible form. It presents a clearly-defined path to a world of learning about GIS, using the Internet and closely-couples reference sources. It is richly produced and illustrated unlike any other in the field, with over 300 full colour illustrations.

Unique in several ways, it presents comprehensive treatments of:

  • Geographic Information Science - the scientific context to GIS, technical content and geographic implications
  • The real value of GIS - illustrated using real world applications. Treatments emphasize operational, tactical and strategic issues
  • The impact of Internet GIS on interdisciplinary science and society
  • The pivotal role of GIS as a business driver in the information age - including the role of GIS as a business asset and the operational dynamics of its use in practice¬†
