Build a Geographic Analysis Skill Set with Esri Press Books


The true power of a GIS lies in the ability to do analysis. It's fun to see where things are located on a map; however, what can be more exciting is determining why things are located where they are or how specific information can lead to choosing a certain course of action. Esri Press books can be useful resources in developing the skills needed to perform these types of analyses using GIS analysis tools.

GIS Tutorial II: Spatial Analysis Workbook is the latest addition to the GIS Tutorial book series. Developed for intermediate to advanced GIS users, this book offers hands-on experience learning to use the analysis tools in ArcGIS Desktop. Users are able to discover through spatial analysis how new information and new relationships within their data can become apparent.

GIS Tutorial II: Spatial Analysis Workbook was written by David Allen, and it complements previous Esri Press publications, The Esri Guide to GIS Analysis, volumes 1 and 2, by Andy Mitchell (see below).

The book includes a 180-day evaluation of ArcGIS Desktop 9.3 on DVD. In addition, instructors can request a teacher resource disk with finished maps, a sample syllabus, and a teacher's guide with answers to study questions. ISBN: 9781589482012, 418 pp., $79.95.
