GIS Case Studies and Data Models for Industry Books

  • Arc Hydro Groundwater
    GIS for Hydrogeology
    Arc Hydro Groundwater: GIS for Hydrogeology describes the groundwater data model, a new geodatabase design for representing groundwater systems using ArcGIS software. The groundwater data model shares a common framework with the surface water data model, Arc Hydro. Examples illustrating concepts and uses of the Arc Hydro Groundwater data model for management, visualization, and analysis, make this book an invaluable resource for hydrologists, water professionals, GIS specialists, and students who work with groundwater data to research and solve water resource problems.
  • Arc Marine
    GIS for a Blue Planet
    Arc Marine: GIS for a Blue Planet presents the initial results of a successful effort to create and define a data model for the marine community. The data model not only provides structure to storing and analysing marine data but helps users create maps and three-dimensional scenes of the marine environment in ways invaluable to decision making. The standards and best practices that emerge from the case studies in Arc Marine form a diverse set of resources to draw from as the marine community strives to understand, illuminate, chart, and explore the unknown depths.
  • Confronting Catastrophe
    A GIS Handbook
    Confronting Catastrophe: A GIS Handbook demonstrates how the digital mapping and analysis tools of GIS technology can be critical for comprehensive preparation and quick response to disasterous events. This book takes readers through the five stages of management?Identification and Planning, Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery?and shows how GIS processes can be incorporated into each. With full-color maps, checklists, and the hard lessons learned from the real world of catastrophe response and preparedness, Confronting Catastrophe is a hands-on manual for GIS practitioners and decision makers whose communities face the threat of large-scale disasters.
  • Empowering Electric and Gas Utilities with GIS
    Electric and gas utilities shoulder enormous responsibilities to their customers, shareholders, government regulators, and the environment, ever aware of the critical role they play in keeping homes heated, factories running, and cities illuminated. An enterprise GIS can transform utilities by raising efficiency and lowering costs while enhancing communication and decision-making processes. Empowering Electric and Gas Utilities with GIS details the difference an enterprise GIS can make to an energy provider of any size. This book is an easy-to-read narrative about the trials and tribulations of a fictitious utility, AnyTown Energy. Case studies folded into the narrative illustrate how utilities using GIS in the real world have improved operations, customer service, and business practices. Empowering Electric and Gas Utilities with GIS is for utility executives, operations and technology managers, and financial officers.
  • GIS for Decision Support and Public Policy Making
    Elected officials and department heads are increasingly relying on geographic information system (GIS) technology to make efficient and accurate decisions when and where it counts. GIS for Decision Support and Public Policy Making presents twenty-seven case studies and eight exercises that demonstrate the positive impact of incorporating GIS methodology in daily operations of the public sector. Discover how GIS has improved the communication, collaboration, and decision making in the organizations featured in this book. A return on investment (ROI) matrix is also included as a resource to evaluate cost and time savings due to the increased productivity that a GIS allows.
  • GIS for Environmental Management
    In GIS for Environmental Management, Robert Scally has compiled the firsthand experiences of scientists and GIS experts throughout the world to examine how dedicated environmental professionals use GIS technology to preserve and renew critical ecosystems in order to benefit wildlife as well as human lives. The case studies in this book explore how biologists, geologists, conservationists, and others responsible for managing and protecting the environment rely on GIS to help them deal with a range of environmental issues, including biodiversity and pollution, coastal zone management, and change detection. This reader-friendly text is relevant for non-technical audiences as wells as GIS professionals
