Waste of Money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: An Introduction to Geographical Information Systems (Paperback)
As a first year geography student we were told to buy this as a 'core reading', after no previous experience of using GIS it was expected by many on my course that it would tell us how to use it and perform simple tasks on the programme.
However the book seems to be an autobiography of the authors concerned and contains nothing more than case studies of where GIS is used, seems that 'an introduction to GIS' is an inappropriate title. It spent most of my first year propping open my door and as a student £35 for a textbook is pretty steep and was of little use. Seems unsuprising there are lots of used copies for sale on here! (probably not really used at all!!)
