Synopses & Reviews
GIS Tutorial II: Spatial Analysis Workbook offers hands-on exercises to help GIS users at the intermediate level continue to build their problem-solving and analysis skills. Inspired by The ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis book series by Andy Mitchell, GIS Tutorial II provides a practical format for GIS users to develop proficiency in various spatial analysis methods, including classification; assessment of quantities and densities; location analysis; change over time, location, and value comparisons; geographic distribution; pattern analysis; and cluster identification. Whether used in combination with The ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis books or by itself, GIS Tutorial II: Spatial Analysis Workbook is the perfect tool for anyone who is ready to take their knowledge of GIS technology to the next level. GIS Tutorial II: Spatial Analysis Workbook includes a fully functioning 180-day trial version of ArcGIS® Desktop 9.3 software on DVD and a DVD of data for working through the exercises.
Book News Annotation:
Allen has more than 25 years of experience working with geographic information systems (GIS) and digital mapping in the private and municipal sectors. He provides this spatial analysis workbook for those who need to use ArcGIS tools to reveal hidden patterns in geospatial data. Designed as a companion volume to Andy Mitchell's ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis, Volumes 1 & 2, this book contains specific exercises that illustrate proper classifications, assessment quantities and densities, location analysis, value comparison, change over time, geographic distribution, pattern analysis and cluster identification. Included with the book is a DVD-ROM containing a trial version of the ArcView 9.3 software and a second DVD with data for the tutorials. A separate DVD with a sample syllabus, course guide and answer key is available for instructors, and can be requested directly from ESRI Press.

The first intermediate workbook in the GIS Tutorial series, GIS Tutorial for Spatial Analysis complements Andy Mitchell's ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis, Volumes 1 and 2. Offering hands-on exercises that parallel the varied forms of spatial analysis in Mitchell's books, this tutorial enables students to further develop their spatial thinking and GIS computer skills. This tutorial also supports the definition of critical thinking skills such as classification; assessment of quantities and densities; location analysis; change over time, location, and value comparisons; geographic distribution; pattern analysis; cluster identification; and problem solving.
