Format: Paperback
Very technical and theoretical. The chapter on databases is excellent. Contains a lot of maths. It is invaluable if you are doing an MSc or higher in GIS. I didn't understand averything first read, but it eventually starts to make sense. This is not a criticism of the book, but of myself coming from a non-math background. Buy it!

A clear description of the architecture of a GIS 19 Oct. 2001
By G. Camara - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book fills a very important gap in the GIS literature. There are many good introductory book about GIS (try Burrough, for example), but they have been mostly written having a geographer or an earth scientist as their prospective reader. By contrast, Worboys writes for the computer engineer or programmer who wants to understand how a GIS really works inside. The author is a leading researcher on the field, and the book is clearly and concisely written. If you are a computer professional working in the GIS area, you'll find this book invaluable.
