This revision builds upon the strength of the highly successful first edition. The organizing framework for Exploring Geographic Information Systems simultaneously views the subject as a technical problem, as an empowering application, as a scientific endeavor, as an academic pursuit and as a social necessity. The author's philosophy towards teaching a GIS course is to focus on critical thinking. This focus allows students to gain the ability to make judgements concerning the fitness of tools and information sources.
