The most thorough, broad-ranging account of the theoretical basis and practical uses of geographical information systems. Geographical data are used in so many aspects of our lives today, from disaster relief operations to finding directions on our smartphones. We can all be data collectors, adding locational information as we digitally capture our day-to-day experiences. Geographical information systems (GIS) are the software tools that facilitate the transformation of raw data into useful information. Building on Peter Burrough’s seminal work, this reinvigorated edition of Principles of Geographical Information Systems clearly explains how data are converted into digital form, and how analytical capabilities are used to bring understanding to a range of issues and areas of interest.

Features

New to this edition:

  • Three entirely new chapters introduce you to:
  • Visualization, with topics including ephemeral and permanent output, three-dimensional visualization, and virtual reality;
  • Dynamic modelling, which provides a detailed introduction to the connections between GIS and these models;
  • The statistical analysis of geographical data.
  • Coverage of mobile GIS, remote sensing, network analysis, spatial analysis, point pattern analysis, and digital elevation models has been enhanced.
  • Common datasets are now throughout the book to illustrate how one set of data can be explored and applied in numerous ways.
