Publisher Comments:

This self-study workbook is a hands-on introduction to geographic information system (GIS) software using the ESRI ArcGIS Desktop products: ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo. A GIS is a computer-based system for collecting, storing, managing, analyzing, and presenting geographic information. In this book you will plan and conduct a GIS analysis project with the applications found in the ArcGIS Desktop. Those applications are the following:
ArcMap is used for the editing, display, query, and analysis of map data as well as map layout tasks.
ArcCatalog locates, browses, and manages spatial data.
ArcToolbox is used for performing geoprocessing operations such as coordinate system definition and map projection.
You will learn
Some of the many ways GIS is used today
The structure and use of different GIS data models
How to plan a GIS project and assemble a project database
How to conduct a GIS analysis project
How to present analysis results using maps, reports, and charts
The book's two parts, "Getting to Know ArcGIS" and "Conducting a GIS Project," include tutorials. The first tutorial will help you quickly learn the basics of browsing GIS data and making maps. The second tutorial will show you how to use the ArcGIS desktop applications together, in the context of planning and conducting a GIS analysis project. Most important, you will learn a framework for structuring your own GIS analysis projects.
Getting Started with ArcGIS is the first step with ArcGIS, whether you're a seasoned user making the transition to version 8.x or a new user just getting started with the world's most advanced GIS software.
