From the reviews: "The work of ISO/TC211 in the field of geographic information standards is becoming known to many in the industry ! . This book ! is a further attempt to explain what is happening and to provide a source of reference material. ! In summary, the book contains a vast amount of information that provides an invaluable reference volume. ! the book will serve its intended market well and lifts the veil a little more on the world of GI standardisation." (Iain Greenway, Geomatics World, Vol. 13 (1), November/December, 2004) "The book addresses scientists and technical experts who have already some background knowledge in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and who want to know more about standardisation in GIS ! . The authors also meet the needs of programmers who are going to implement ISO 19100 standards ! . Last, but not least, this richly illustrated book will help readers to better understand the rather abstract ISO documents." (Geomatik Schweiz/Geomatique/Geomatica, Vol. 102 (5), 2004)
