Introducing Geographic Information Systems with ArcGIS® serves as both an easy-to-understand introduction to GIS and a hands-on manual for the ArcGIS® 9.1 software. This unique and exciting book is written by a leading author in the field with thirty years of experience developing successful books on computer software and GPS hardware. Each chapter presents two mutually supporting sections:
- Overview—a discussion of theory and ideas relating to GIS, laying the groundwork for spatial analysis
- Step-by-Step—instructions on how to use ArcGIS® software. There are sixty exercises and nine review exercises throughout the book, covering most of the topics students need to gain GIS jobs or continue work in GIS or GIScience
Complete with a CD-ROM containing data for working out all of the exercises, Introducing Geographic Information Systems with ArcGIS® features:
- A wealth of project-oriented exercises that offers readers a practical approach to learning skills
- An innovative Fast Facts approach that encourages readers to create their own reference manuals as they learn by working through the exercises
- A step-by-step workbook that walks readers through setting up their first projects, adding data, performing analyses, and generating maps and reports
Introducing Geographic Information Systems with ArcGIS® is easy to read, informative, and entertaining, as it serves to present both the theory behind and the practical applications of GIS.
