  • A to Z GIS
    An Illustrated Dictionary of Geographic Information
    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.
  • 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.
  • Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai
    Archaeology and Landscape in the Mongolian Altai is an atlas that examines the distribution of ancient surface archaeological discoveries within the mountainous region of northwestern Mongolia. For thousands of years, this region was inhabited by hunters and pastoral nomads who erected great stone altars, burial mounds, and standing stones in the valleys through which they moved. They left behind huge concentrations of rock art in the high valleys?figures that effectively recount their lives.
  • Botanical Serigraphs
    The Gene Bauer Collection
    All together for the first time, the hand-printed serigraphs of artist Gene Bauer are reproduced here in Botanical Serigraphs: The Gene Bauer Collection, along with her original notes. Over several years in the 1970s, on behalf of California Garden Clubs, Inc., Gene Bauer explored fifty-six arboreta and public gardens throughout the state of California, taking living plant material as the subject for artwork intended to educate and inspire. These serigraphs?delicate silk screen prints?were initially created for limited-edition booklets celebrating plant life in the Golden State, both native and introduced. From each drawing, she created a serigraph for the cover and illustrations of a booklet she handcrafted, bound with yarn, and sent to garden club officials each month.
  • Building a GIS
    System Architecture Design Strategies for Managers
    The innovative Capacity Planning Tool included with Building a GIS increases the likelihood of successful GIS implementation by establishing a framework of setting performance targets and validating that targets are met throughout deployment. This book challenges the way in which IT operations are managed, and provides a better understanding of the performance scalability of software products. Building a GIS is an essential companion piece to Roger Tomlinson?s Thinking About GIS, Third Edition. Together, these books aim to help organisations implement, integrate, and scale up a GIS at a lesser cost.
