"[P]resents a realistic picture of detailed tasks that must be addressed in order to successfully manage a GIS...a wealth of valuable information...Huxhold and Levinsohn present some excellent ideas, conceptual frameworks, principles, guidance, and experience....[T]his book is the only one to
date that substantially addresses the tasks involved in GIS management."--URISA Journal
"[A]n interesting, well-written volume...[with] smooth writing, appropriate definitions, good examples, an emphasis on strategic thinking and vision, and a thorough analysis of what an effective organizational mobilization implies....The book is encyclopedic in using existing literature,
outlining management approaches, and explicating standards and criteria. I suggest it be used for its obvious relevance to GIS practitioners. Indeed, it is an excellent manual for planning, managing, and improving the climate of the increasing armory of decision support systems, especially regarding
rapidly changing information technologies."--GIS World
"Good, to-the-point approach! Doesn't get bogged down with techno jargon. A good, concise how-it-works and how-to-use-it format. The application is one we don't often see in these kinds of books."--James Segedy, Ball State University
"As the field of GIS matures , there is a trend to downplay the management, implementation, and organizational context of Geographic Information Systems and consider the long-term aspects from a practical and pragmatic perspective. This book starts us down that path."--James Lein, Ohio
"A good addition to GIS literature. This much-needed book fills a gap in the discipline."--Indrajith Wijayratne, Michigan Tech University
"A much needed book which appears to nicely draw together a wealth of information."--Daniel F. Wagner, University of South Carolina
