Editorial Reviews


"In this new edition, Delaney and Van Niel present the functions of geographic information systems (GIS) with emphasis on concepts, principles, and operations rather than software. The writing is crisp and precise, carefully metering the jargon common in software-specific training manuals....An excellent book for nontechnical GIS managers or for senior members of an organization that uses GIS as a teaching, research, or decision-support tool....Highly recommended."--CHOICE

"In summary, this is an excellent starting point for anyone who is starting to use GIS, and a valuable resource for anyone teaching courses on the subject. Even for those who aren't using GIS directly, it is a quick read that provides valuable background on the field to help understand the problems faced by GIS operators."--The Leading Edge

Format: Paperback
Book contains excellent examples to work from. It is written upon the premise that you are new to GIS and will walk you through the understanding of GIS process' without trying to sell you a specific "software or program" for GIS. I found what I felt to be one error and have submitted an inquiry to the publisher. Page 38 has an end of the chapter review type quiz (as each chapter has). The answers which are in the back of the book I felt did not and could not coincide with the actual data given for the quiz.Overall the book is effective at the process of familiarizing a person with the different aspects of the GIS community.
