Essential grounding in basic & advanced applications of GIS.
on 1 December 1999
A well written text that is highly accessible to both the reader who has no previous knowledge in GIS, and the reader who wishes to consolidate and extend their knowledge. Littered with extensive examples on the key concepts and applications of GIS, each chapter is clearly written and provides an intelligent synopsis on the area in question. Illustrations, graphics and the glossary supplement the text, aiding in understanding for the unknowledgable reader; whilst references and suggestions for further study at the end of each chapter provide the more informed reader with opportunities to increase the depth of their knowledge in specific areas. An essential book for anyone who wishes to learn, or further their knowledge on GIS.
