This book is designed to provide students in a first or second GIS course with a solid foundation in both GIS concepts and the use of GIS. Introduction to GIS strikes a careful balance between GIS concepts and hands-on applications. The main portion of the chapter presents GIS terms and concepts and helps students learn how each one fits into a complete GIS system. At the end of each chapter, an application section with 3-5 tasks presents students with actual GIS exercises and the necessary data to solve the problem.

User Review  - quantum_flapdoodle - LibraryThing

A textbook for users of GIS, including sets of exercises. For the most part, it's a bit too dense for beginners, and as an instructor, I found it much less useful than the textbook provided by ESRI Read full review
