About The Book
The original in its field and still my recommended student textbook, Principles of Geographical Information Systems supports the reader throughout their journey from novice to GIS professional.Dr Neil Stuart, School of GeoSciences, University of Edinburgh
The most thorough, broad-ranging account of the theoretical basis and practical uses of geographical information systems. Geographical data are used in so many aspects of our lives today, from disaster relief operations to finding directions on our smartphones. We can all be data collectors, adding locational information as we digitally capture our day-to-day experiences. Geographical information systems (GIS) are the software tools that facilitate the transformation of raw data into useful information. Building on Peter Burroughs seminal work, this reinvigorated edition of Principles of Geographical Information Systems clearly explains how data are converted into digital form, and how analytical capabilities are used to bring understanding to a range of issues and areas of interest.
