  • GIS Basicsby Stephen Wise

    CRC Press 2014; US$ 62.95

    Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are computer systems for storing, displaying and analyzing spatial data. The past twenty years have seen a rapid growth in their use in government, commerce and academia, and they can be used for managing a network of utilities, from handling census data through to planning the location of a new supermarket. But... more...

  • Spatial Data Qualityby Wenzhong Shi; Peter Fisher; Michael F. Goodchild

    CRC Press 2003; US$ 167.95

    As research in the geosciences and social sciences becomes increasingly dependent on computers, applications such as geographical information systems are becoming indispensable tools.

  • Uncertainty in Remote Sensing and GISby Giles M. Foody; Peter M. Atkinson

    Wiley 2003; US$ 240.95 US$ 208.82

    Remote sensing and geographical information science (GIS) have advanced considerably in recent years. However, the potential of remote sensing and GIS within the environmental sciences is limited by uncertainty, especially in connection with the data sets and methods used. In many studies, the issue of uncertainty has been incompletely addressed. The... more...
