Have you ever wondered how to explain what GIS is all about to your family and friends? Are you wondering what in the world to give these same family and friends as gifts this Christmas? Well, here is one idea for your consideration.
The ArcGIS Book: 10 Big Ideas about Applying Geography to Your World is a publication from Esri Press that lets GIS professionals like you help loved ones understand the amazing work you do every day (and even lets them experience it firsthand!).
Available at your favorite online or brick-and-mortar bookseller, the full-color, handsome print edition looks great on a coffee table and invites interest and questions. Pick it up and browse, then go to a computer or tablet device and link to the free companion website to see the interactive examples come alive. For those who catch the GIS bug, there are even free ArcGIS trial software and real world tutorials to complete the ultimate GIS holiday immersion.
This year, give the gift of GIS.
