Review:

The content and structure of your text is very good for undergraduate students- good, but not overwhelming, coverage of the important concepts, nicely conceived, but not trivial, numbered step procedures, practical chapter-ending exercises, and plenty of online references. The text will really be useful in expanding business students' awareness of spatial information. -Eugene J. Rathswohl, University of San Diego
