Geographic Information Systems for Transportation: Principles and Applications (Spatial Information Systems)

Geographic Information Systems for Transportation: Principles and Applications (Spatial Information Systems) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

GIS data and tools are revolutionizing transportation research and decision making, allowing transportation analysts and professionals to understand and solve complex transportation problems that were previously impossible. Here, Miller and Shaw present a comprehensive discussion of fundamental geographic science and the applications of these principles using GIS and other software tools. By providing thorough and accessible discussions of transportation analysis within a GIS environment, this volume fills a critical niche in GIS-T and GIS literature.

Book News Annotation:

Acknowledging that "despite the hype about telecommuting, teleshopping, and virtual entertainment, we still sit in traffic jams ...," Miller (geography, U. of Utah, Salt Lake City) and Shaw (geography, U. of Tennessee, Knoxville) nonetheless look to high- tech solutions to transportation problems via applications of Geographic Information Systems for Transportation (GIS-T). A table showing the increase in the number of theses/dissertations on GIS and transportation from 1982-95 reinforces the message that this is indeed a hot topic. Assuming basic knowledge of GIS, the authors discuss scientific principles from capturing to analyzing digital geographic information about transportation infrastructure and systems; and apply the GIS-T toolkit to ground transportation planning, intelligent transportation systems, environmental and hazards analysis, and logistics.
