Abstract: The Third Edition of this bestselling textbook has been fully revised and updated to include the latest developments in the field and still retains its accessible format to appeal to a broad range of students.Now divided into five clear sections the book investigates the unique, complex and difficult problems that are posed by geographic information and together they build into a holistic understanding of the key principles of GIS.This is the most current, authoritative and comprehensive treatment of the field, that goes from fundamental principles to the big picture of:GIS and the New World Ordersecurity, health and well-beingdigital differentiation in GIS consumptionthe core organizing role of GIS in Geographythe greening of GISgrand challenges of GISciencescience and explanationKey features:Four-colour throughoutAssociated website with free online resourcesTeachers manual available for lecturersA complete learning resource, with accompanying instructor links, free online lab resources and personal syllabiIncludes learning objectives and review boxes throughout each chapterNew in this edition:Completely revised with a new five part structure: Foundations; Principles; Techniques; Analysis; Management and PolicyAll new personality boxes of current GIS practitionersNew chapters on Distributed GIS, Map Production, Geovisualization, Modeling, and Managing GIS

Abstract: Chapter headings. Introduction to GIS. Spatial data models. Spatial data structures. Spatial data input. Visualization and query of spatial data. Spatial data transformations. Tools for map analysis: single maps. Tools for map analysis: map pairs. Tools for map analysis: multiple maps.
TL;DR: The integration of multi-criteria evaluation techniques with GIS is forwarded as providing the user with the means to evaluate various alternatives on the basis of multiple and conflicting criteria and objectives.
Abstract: Geographical information systems (GIS) provide the decision-maker with a powerful set of tools for the manipulation and analysis of spatial information. The functionality of GIS is, however, limited to certain deterministic analyses in key application areas such as spatial search. The integration of multi-criteria evaluation (MCE) techniques with GIS is forwarded as providing the user with the means to evaluate various alternatives on the basis of multiple and conflicting criteria and objectives. An example application based on the search for suitable sites for the disposal of radioactive waste in the UK using the Arc/Info GIS is included. The potential use of a combined GIS-MCE approach in the development of spatial decision support systems is considered.

TL;DR: A new version of PASSaGE, rewritten from the ground up, has now been released and is available for download and provides an excellent platform for both scientific analysis and classroom training.
Abstract: Summary 1. Spatial analysis has become increasingly popular in the biological sciences, particularly in disciplines such as landscape ecology and landscape genetics. However, many statistical functions for performing spatial analysis are not readily available (except in the most limited manner) in common, easy-to-use statistical packages or geographic information systems (GIS) software. 2. Over the last decade, the software package Pattern Analysis, Spatial Statistics and Geographic Exegesis (PASSaGE) has been popular tool for conducting spatial statistics. PASSaGE is completely free and has a user-friendly graphical user interface. A new version of PASSaGE, rewritten from the ground up, has now been released and is available for download. 3. PASSaGE 2 is significantly more user friendly than the original release and provides an excellent platform for both scientific analysis and classroom training. PASSaGE 2 includes a broad array of spatial statistical analyses not commonly found in other software packages or GIS software, all in an easy-to-use framework. It includes support for one-, two- and three-dimensional spatial analysis, including a number of unique and newly developed approaches.
