Introductory Geographic Information Systems, Jensen


Introductory Geographic Information Systems PDF Download Ebook. John R. Jensen offers ideal introduction for those who know very little about geographic information systems and spatial analysis. This book shows guidelines to identify the optimal routes for emergency vehicles, to determine the best locations for various businesses, schools, and facilities, to monitor the growth and expansion of urban areas as a way to manage natural resources, and much more.

Relatively complex GIS principles are introduced in basic terms, often using graphics to communicate principles rather than complex mathematical equations. Content is not geared toward any single commercial GIS software program, and the book’s timely, practical examples and extensive visual format appeal to today’s students.

This text can be used at the undergraduate or graduate level in one or two semester courses in Introductory and Intermediate GIS, yet can also be useful for professionals looking to increase their knowledge in this subject area. The book contains hundreds of entirely new illustrations and tables created by the authors to make complex principles easy to understand.

The majority of the geospatial analysis examples used in the book were created using ESRI ArcGIS and ERDAS Imagine. Nevertheless, the illustrative examples are crafted so that the book emphasizes theoretical and practical GIS processing without advocating or advertising the use of one GIS or digital image processing system over another.

This book is written for those who know very little about geographic information systems and spatial analysis. Relatively complex GIS principles are introduced in as simple a manner as possible, often using graphics to communicate principles rather than complex mathematical equations. When equations are required, they are presented using simple algebraic and/or trigonometry terms.
