Geographic Information Systems for Geoscientists: Modelling with GIS


Book Details

  • Title: Geographic Information Systems for Geoscientists: Modelling with GIS (Computer Methods in the Geosciences S.)
  • Paperback 414 pages (October 1994)
  • Publisher: Pergamon
  • ISBN: 0080424201

Book Description

This text shows how to use GIS technology for geological applications, placing emphasis on the end-user. It examines how to bring spatial data into a GIS, how to explore spatial inter-relationships in the data and how to combine map information with models. In addition, the book contains a series of chapters on the concepts and tools of GIS, followed by a series of chapters on geological applications. It is illustrated throughout with geological examples: under data capture, methods for digitizing geological maps and the associated attributes in the legend are illustrated with examples from several Canadian localities; data transformations are demonstrated with examples from geophysical and geochemical surveys; modelling operations are illustrated on a variety of data types, including satellite images, digital elevation models, regional geochemical surveys and alteration maps. A range of general modelling types are also discussed and the author's own work on mineral potential mapping with statistical data is presented. The book includes an examination of other applications, covering waste disposal site selection, seismic zonation, groundwater analysis, coal basin analysis, and acid-drainage from a mine. The main emphasis is on 2-D applications, although some 3-D examples are discussed.

Introduction to Spatial Databases: Applications to GIS


Book Details

  • Title: Introduction to Spatial Databases: Applications to GIS
  • About the Author: By Agnès Voisard, Philippe Rigaux, Michel Scholl and Agnes Voisard

Book Description

Spatial Databases covers all of the major themes of the field -- representation, query languages, computational geometry, spatial indexing -- using geographic information systems as the principal application domain and motivation. It will make an excellent introduction for computer science professionals and students interested in exploring GIS, or for GIS professionals interested in learning more about the computer science foundations of the field. The book is also an excellent guide to the literature, with comprehensive bibliographic notes at the end of each chapter.

-- Michael F. Goodchild
National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis

Spatial Databases is the first unified and in-depth treatment of special techniques for dealing with spatial data. Organized to focus on the specific features of spatial data that are not adequately handled by mainstream DBMS technology, this book surveys the various low-level techniques developed to address these problems, including spatial data models, algorithms, scales, and indexing methods, and takes an in-depth look at today's most prominent GIS products.

Exploring Spatial Analysis in GIS

Book Details

  • Title: Exploring Spatial Analysis in GIS
  • Paperback: 500 pages
  • Publisher: OnWord Press; 1st edition (December 1, 1996)
  • ISBN: 1566901197

Book Description

Defines basic concepts and explores real world applications. Covers single and multiple layer operations, point pattern, network, grid and surface analysis, spatial modeling and more. Paper. DLC: Geographic information systems.

This book is unique in covering a wide range of spatial analysis methods: single layer operations, multiple layer operations, point pattern analysis, network analysis, "spatial modelling," surface analysis, grid analysis, and decision making.

As an overview for those who know some parts of spatial analysis and want a sense of the gaps in their knowledge, this book is good to skim through. Others will be better off looking elsewhere, because the material is of inconsistent quality and of varying difficulty, and none of it goes very deeply into the subject.


The Global Positioning System and GIS: An Introduction

Book Details

  • Title: The Global Positioning System and GIS: An Introduction
  • Hardcover 380 pages (April 18, 2002)
  • Publisher: Taylor & Francis
  • ISBN: 0415286085

Book Description

This is a significantly revised and extended new edition of Michael Kennedy's acclaimed book.The Global Positioning System and GIS is a clear text and guide to the use and integration of these powerful technologies, with each topic combining an overview with a step-by-step approach. The book now comes with a set of resources on a CD-ROM, including an instructor's guide, demonstration data and exercises. Many more sets of GIS data are provided with the sample GPS data.
