About this book

Describes GIS and its underlying principles, and gives examples from the geological sciences, placing emphasis on the analysis and modelling of spatial data and applications to mineral exploration.

W.C. Peters, University of Arizona Highly recommended for college libraries serving students in earth science, civil engineering, and geography. Upper-division undergraduate through professional. Choice S.J.D. Cox ...first text book on GIS directed specifically at geoscientists...an effective...introduction to GIS...will...bring explorationists up to speed on quantitative methods for mineral potential evaluation and the assistance they might get from the powerful new technology of GIS. Economic Geology ...should serve well as a textbook for GIS courses and as a reference volume for practising geoscience professionals. AMF Reviews C. Peter Keller This book is a 'must have' on the bookshelf of any geoscientist interested in digital spatial data analysis. Computers & Geosciences T.V. Loudon The book is a worthy addition to the valuable series...can be seen as required reading for many mineral explorationists, a comprehensive review of GIS concepts, a text for GIS courses, and a useful reference source in any geoscience library. Episodes R.S. Shiel For those who have never used GIS before, this text provides a readable account in a related field. It is not overly mathematical, and will appeal to those who do not wish to read the more technical texts in soil science. European Journal of Soil Science
