Book Description

7 Sep 2001 Geography
The primary focus of this text is on the process of cartographic modeling and GIS modeling. The text goes beyond cartographic modeling to incorporate supplementary or complementary technologies and logics to show that spatio-temporal modeling is not limited to cartographic modeling, nor to Map Algebra. DeMers consistent, friendly and engaging style has been highly praised by reviewers of this title as well as users of his market leading Fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good content, often seems too wordy 13 Jan 2005
By Philip Riggs - Published on Amazon.com
I disagree in part with the comments below. This book covers most basic aspects of raster-based modeling. Most GIS books I come across seem to focus on vector format data and concepts. I found this book is a breath of fresh air. And it doesn't limit itself to one particular GIS sofware package and their algorithms when discussing raster abilities. My only negative comments are that it often seems too wordy (although that may be a function of the book layout, it's printed on 8.5 x 11 paper and many pages are single column text only which really appear daunting when looking at them), some subjects could use better, more in-depth coverage with diagrams and figures, and the price.

Raster-based modeling is a rich environment with great potential and I think this book gives a much better introduction than more general GIS books. In addition to this book, I would also recommend books by Joseph K Berry for more advanced raster analysis topics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent text covering Raster usage in GIS applications 27 Feb 2013
By Doctor Gangreene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you're interested in working with raster data (that's the pixellated kind, like digital photos or elevation maps) this is a decent introduction and mid-level instructional text. It covers what some of the raster file formats include, some of the algebra and functions you can perform with raster files, and a number of other related topics. It's also a pretty short read, as textbooks go.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was pretty good 19 Jan 2008
By Aleutian Ice Skater - Published on Amazon.com
We used this book in a class several years ago. It was a little dense, but most text books are. It was quite good, and now that I'm teaching GIS to high school kids, I have refered to it several times in order to help describe a concept or technique.

It's probaly not the best, but it's pretty good for the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars "The best book out there on raster modeling" (unfortunately) 28 Sep 2004
By C. Guiles - Published on Amazon.com
I have to agree with the above review - over-simplified explainations of the easier topics, then no information on the more difficult ones. A glossary of some of the more complicated terminology would also be EXTREMELY helpful. The diagrams that are included are confusing, particularly the ones that contain mistakes! I am disappointed with this book, but according to my professor this is the best book available right now. COULD SOMEONE PLEASE WRITE A BETTER BOOK????
