About this book

Geographic information science is an emerging field that combines aspects of many different disciplines. As a result, GIScience literature is spread widely across the academic spectrum, textbooks tend to have specific disciplinary orientations, and the vocabulary is an amalgam of all of these fields. Often, given the specialized disciplinary orientations of authors, some expectation of foundational knowledge is assumed in much of the literature, making it difficult for readers from different disciplines to understand the full context of what they are reading.

The Encyclopedia of Geographic Information Science provides condensed but rich information about themes broadly across the field, in an A-Z format.

Media reviews
Most of the topics in this encyclopedia will remain important for years to come. Many of the topics here are germane to geography such as the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem, spatial autocorrelation, mental maps, and scale. For these reasons as well as for its sheer readability and usefulness, I believe that this book will serve as a practical reference for geography and GIS educators, practitioners, and university students long into the future. It's not a reference for taking up space on the shelf, but one for the top of the desk, to be referred to often. -ESRI -- By Dr. Joseph J. Kerski, ESRI Education Manager ESRI 20080615
