  • Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai: An Atlas—This book examines the distribution of ancient surface archaeological discoveries within the mountainous region of northwestern Mongolia. Using location and photographic data in the field, the authors created GIS maps to study the cultural landscape and cultural preservation of the Altai, one of two mountain ranges found in Mongolia. Rich in photographs and maps, this atlas conveys the heritage of this rugged environment. ISBN: 9781589482326, 225 pp., $79.95
  • GIS for Building and Managing Infrastructure—This map collection highlights 57 different organizations that have incorporated GIS technology into the development, management, and administration of their infrastructure projects and will likely serve as a model for others involved in comparable infrastructure initiatives. A community wildfire protection plan, an identification of structurally deficient city bridges, a study of the potential impact of a proposed development within an existing environment, and an exploration of urban taxi demand for dispatch efficiency are just a few of the infrastructure projects illustrated in the book. ISBN: 9781589482524, 72 pp., $24.95
