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.

A good insight for those who want to get acquainted with the geographical information sciences.
A very lucid and clear introduction into GIS.

I used this book as an environmental science degree student and found it helpful as a reference text for my studies.

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!!)
