This book is the ideal guide for readers who want to build a Web site based on GIS and mapping technology, or to include maps on their Web sites. It describes the concept of geographic information retrieval and data sharing, outlines motivations for sharing geographic data, and includes step-by-step instructions through the planning and development stages of the Web site. The book also includes an overview of the software available to accomplish these tasks, as well as a brief introduction to the Internet.As a GIS manager who must decide whether to make GIS data widely available via the Internet, I found this book thought provokingThe examples and Web addresses make this book a useful tool thats readable by both technical and non-technical decision makers.
