5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 20 Jan 2012
This review is from: Interacting with Geospatial Technologies (Hardcover)
The book provides a comprehensive overview of the relatively new intersection between two fields: HCI and Geo-Information Science.
Because it covers an extremely wide range of topics my first expectations were that it would be a relatively difficult material to go through. These were completely discarded when I went over the first chapters, and without knowing it, continued reading until the end. The text is exquisitely written, but at the same time perfectly clear and informative.

Even though I was interested mainly in two specific topics: collaborative use of geospatial technologies and mobile spatial interaction, I found the rest of the chapters very useful as well. The introductory sections flow perfectly and shift gently from basic HCI theory, to spatial perception and cognition, to finally cover the most fundamental cartographic principles and theories. What I liked the most is that throughout the text, there are a number of case studies that provide context for more complex issues under discussion, but also serve as excellent practical examples for the points that the text is trying to communicate.

The range of literature that is cited and the additional information resources at the end of each chapter make this book an excellent reference piece.
In my opinion, it is definitely worth having! I am sure I will be referring back to it time and again.
