A to Z GIS: An Illustrated Dictionary of Geographic Information Systems



"GIS systems are now everywhere and the technology has become embedded in our society. As it has evolved and grown, so has the language of this powerful technology. This dictionary presents the most comprehensive collection of GIS terms and illustrations to help students, educators, and professionals understand and use the special language of GIS in research, field studies, and real-world applications."

"Why would a library need to purchase the print dictionary? The convenience of a paper handbook of small size (5.25 x 8 inches), always readily available at hand, makes it an excellent reference; the color illustrations (often more than one per page) make it visually attractive."
