GIS for Business and Service Planning: * introduces the management, analysis and modelling of information within GIS and considers some of the basic problems and pitfalls that can occur in practice* covers the major topics of geodemographics and how geographical information can be manipulated and merged into business application databases* discusses the relative merits of customised versus proprietary solutions to business application databases* examines the range of consultancy applications of GIS for business using international case studies, assessing how recent applications have benefited from research developments* critically assesses GIS in the market place and evaluates different GIS strategies GIS for Business and Service Planning is essential reading for GIS professionals, marketeers, GIS students and management scientists.
