5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent text book and technical reference source
Having used this book both as an MSc level text book and as a technical reference book in the commercial sector, I can strongly recommend "Principles of Geographical Informations Systems" as a must for any serious GIS user's book shelf.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good on interpolation, bad structured.
This text leads the reader trough the fundamentals of GIS, with spesial care on interpolation. It is a informative book, but has 2 seriouse flaws: It should be much more concrete and better organised. Still a book one could use on a undergraduate-course.

This review is from: Principles of Geographic Information Systems, 2nd Ed. (Paperback)
Having used this book both as an MSc level text book and as a technical reference book in the commercial sector, I can strongly recommend "Principles of Geographical Informations Systems" as a must for any serious GIS user's book shelf. Suitable for any level of GIS experience, it is well-structured, easy to understand and, most importantly, technically strong. It successfully introduces the fundamental principles of GIS, as well as extensively tackles more technical issues such as the use of spatial statistics in interpolation, error propagation and fuzzy set theory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful book, 2 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Principles of Geographic Information Systems, 2nd Ed. (Paperback)
This is a good book that is really helpful with my geography course detailing data quality issues with using data in a Geographical Information System. It goes through inputs, the processes involved and the outputs that are produced of a GIS system. The book goes in a logical sequence and was handy to use.
