A to Z GIS: An Illustrated Dictionary of Geographic Information Systems
As GIS technology has evolved and grown, so has the language of this powerful tool. Written, developed, and reviewed by more than 150 subject-matter experts, A to Z GIS is packed with more than 1,800 terms, nearly 400 full-color illustrations, and seven encyclopedia-style appendix articles about annotation and labels, features, geometry, layers in ArcGIS, map projections and coordinate systems, remote sensing, and topology. A to Z GIS is a must-have resource for managers, programmers, users, writers, editors, and students discovering the interdisciplinary nature of GIS.
Hydraulic Modeling and GIS
GIS and hydraulic modeling are complementary technologies. By integrating them with each other, water utility companies can reap substantial time and cost savings. A well-designed integration of the two systems provides ready access to mission-critical data. As a result, risk-of-failure analysis, repair and replacement, capacity assessment, capital improvement planning, and numerous other water utility applications run more efficiently and more effectively. Hydraulic Modeling and GIS identifies the challenges that must be navigated and offers best practices for achieving an integration that will be sustainable.
