This book is designed to provide students in a first or second GIS course with a solid foundation in both GIS concepts and the use of GIS. It strikes a careful balance between GIS concepts and hands-on applications.
It integrates key concepts behind the technology with practical concerns and real-world applications. Recognizing that many potential GIS users are non-specialists or may only need a few maps, this book is designed to be accessible, pragmatic and concise.
It also illustrates how GIS is used to ask questions, inform choices and guide policy. From the melting of the polar ice caps to privacy issues associated with mapping, this book provides a gentle, yet substantive, introduction to the use and application of digital maps, mapping and GIS.
