Foreword by Jane Goodall

Thirty inspiring stories of diverse women using geospatial technology to advance science and help resolve important issues facing the world.

This book includes multicultural women at various points in their careers such as:

From planetary scientists to civil engineers, entrepreneurs to urban planners, the strong, passionate women in Women and GIS, Volume 2: Stars of Spatial Science serve as guiding stars to motivate readers who are developing their own life stories and to inspire their potential to meaningful achievements.
