From the Publisher:

An exploration of geographic information and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) that expands the discussion beyond the normal input-processing-output sequence. The text uses geographical information and case studies to organize an in-depth introduction to the principles and applications of GIS. The author first examines the manipulations that support analytical uses of GIS, including measurement and frameworks, representations, data quality, transformation and operations, parametric mapping, simple logic and overlay, taxonomy, distance transformations and surfaces. He then moves on to a discussion of operations that connect the practical exercises in the book to professional applications of GIS techniques in bureaucratic, social and cultural contexts.

From the Back Cover:

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is the organized activity bywhich people:

  • measure aspects of geographic phenomena and processes
  • represent these measurements, usually in the form of a computerdatabase, to emphasize spatial themes, entities, andrelationships
  • operate upon these representations to produce moremeasurements, and to discover new relationships by integratingdisparate sources; and
  • transform these representations to conform to other frameworksof entities and relationships.

These activities reflect the larger context, such asinstitutions and cultures, in which these people carry out theirwork. In turn, the GIS may influence these structures.

This text provides the comprehensive coverage you will need tomaster this powerful new technology.
