Book News Annotation:

This workbook/DVD/CD-ROM package introduces GIS concepts and capabilities, and describes the features of ArcView, ArcEditor, and ArcInfo, the core products of the ArcGIS Desktop line. The workbook offers color screen shots and step-by-step instructions and exercises on basic GIS tasks, such as mapmaking, spatial analysis, and spatial database creation, and explains how to use the software that forms the building blocks of ArcGIS: ArcMap, for displaying and querying maps, and ArcCatalog, for managing geographic data. Also covered are the ESRI data format, the geodatabase, and ModelBuilder, a graphical interface for diagramming and processing solutions to complex spatial analysis problems. The companion DVD contains a fully functioning, 180-day trial version of ArcView 9.3 software. The CD-ROM contains data for use with the book's exercises. No prior knowledge of GIS is needed. The hands-on workbook can be used as a practical manual for classroom lab work, or for on-the-job training. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
