Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This volume deals with the scientific context, content and implications of GIS and the impact of Internet GIS on science and society. It has over 50 illustrated mini-case studies of real GIS applications that show how GIS is being used everyday. Printed in colour with over 500 colour illustrations, the text includes links to several on-line resources including: questions for further study at the end of each chapter; lists of key GIS readings; links to important on-line web sites; cross references to the two-volume Big Book of GIS by the same authors and links to an extensive distance learning web site (ESRI Virtual Campus) with specially prepared materials.
