Bradley Shellito s new textbook uses hands-on experience to
introduce both the how and why of geographic information systems.
Students learn to combine an understanding of basic GIS concepts
with practical ArcGIS skills, following step-by-step instructions
to accomplish a wide range of real-world tasks and applications
while always keeping sight on the conceptual basis and practical
impact of what they are doing. "Discovering GIS and ArcGIS" is
appropriate for introductory GIS courses, or advanced or applied
GIS courses. Instructors will find the coverage they need for a
single intro-level course, a single advanced or applied course, or
a two-course sequence."
