About the Author:

Xuan Zhu is Senior Lecturer in the School of Earth, Atmosphere and Environment, Monash University, Australia.

Review:

"Xuan Zhu has produced an excellent textbook that will complement a wide range of GIS and Environmental Science courses at universities across the world. Readers are taken through the basic elements of spatial data and new technologies, through to more advanced tools and techniques for spatial analysis. The book includes examples of common environmental applications with excellent resources provided online. This is an accessible and practical book that not only covers the theory, but demonstrates how to put theory into practice!"
