Summary
Unique in its integrated approach, combining an easy-to-read introduction to geographic information systems (GIS) with a hands-on workbook of ArcGIS applications, this book is now fully revised to incorporate the latest software update, ArcGIS 10. In addition to maintaining the successful features of prior editions, the new edition shows how to publish maps on the Internet using new exercises. It also introduces readers to the idea of programming in Python, the language ESRI has chosen for applications. A bundled CD contains the data for working out all the exercises in the book.
