ESRI's Essays on Geography and GIS

Relevant collection of essays from the ESRI’s library on how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are pushing the boundaries of Geography sciences and critically changing the way we deal with the built and natural environment.

 

“By understanding geography and people's relationship to location, we can make informed decisions about the way we live on our planet. A geographic information system (GIS) is a technological tool for comprehending geography and making intelligent decisions. GIS organizes geographic data so that a person reading a map can select data necessary for a specific project or task. A good GIS program is able to process geographic data from a variety of sources and integrate it into a map project. From routinely performing work-related tasks to scientifically exploring the complexities of our world, GIS gives people the geographic advantage to become more productive, more aware, and more responsive citizens of planet Earth.”
