Description

Authored by accomplished urban geographers and GIS experts, Exploring the Urban Community: A GIS Approachleverages the modern geographer’s toolset, employing the latest GIS methodology to the study of urban geography. The Second Edition expands upon this timely, applied approach by incorporating new “internet GIS” Google Earth™ activities, which do not require students to own expensive software or travel to a school lab. New exercises are also provided for ArcGIS 9.3 and 10, the latest version of the industry-dominant software. Coupled with current examples and applications from around the world, including a greater focus on India and China, Exploring the Urban Community: A GIS Approach presents an engaging and uniquely hands-on applied approach to the study of urban geography. CourseSmart textbooks do not include any media or print supplements that come packaged with the bound book.
