GIS and Archaeological Site Location Modelling

Over 50 GBP

GIS and Archaeological Site Location Modelling Archaeology researchers and spatial information scientists have been working to refine archaeological predictive modeling and diversify its use for several distinct sets of practitioners, each with fundamentally different interests. GIS and Archaeological Site Location Modelling draws together issues of theory and methodology, scale, data, quantitative methods, and cultural resource management and sets out along with a number of different several site location models and case studies. Written by a distinguished group of international authors, this volume also includes a CD-ROM that provides many maps and color illustrations.

GIS and Crime Mapping

Under 50 GBP

GIS and Crime Mapping GIS & Crime covers the theoretical principles, data processing solutions, partnership working, analytical methods, problem-solving approaches, and map design for GIS and crime in a manner that underpins GIS application use in three broad areas (operational, tactical and strategic). The book also includes short case studies at relevant sections to help demonstrate how the principles and concepts are essential for successful application development. These case studies bring a richness and depth to the text and draw from the authors’ international contacts and knowledge of excellence in the field to offer a global tone to the book.

GIS and hydraulic modeling

GIS Under 20 GBP

GIS and hydraulic modeling GIS and hydraulic modeling are complementary technologies. By integrating them with each other, water utility companies can reap substantial time and cost savings. A well-designed integration of the two systems provides ready access to mission-critical data. As a result, risk-of-failure analysis, repair and replacement, capacity assessment, capital improvement planning, and numerous other water utility applications run more efficiently and more effectively. Hydraulic Modeling and GIS identifies the challenges that must be navigated and offers best practices for achieving an integration that will be sustainable over the long term.

GIS and Spatial Analysis for the Social Sciences: Coding, Mapping, and Modeling

Hard Copy Over 50 GBP Under 50 GBP

GIS and Spatial Analysis for the Social Sciences: Coding, Mapping, and Modeling This is the first book to provide sociologists, criminologists, political scientists, and other social scientists with the methodological logic and techniques for doing spatial analysis in their chosen fields of inquiry. The book contains a wealth of examples as to why these techniques are worth doing, over and above conventional statistical techniques using SPSS or other statistical packages. GIS is a methodological and conceptual approach that allows for the linking together of spatial data, or data that is based on a physical space, with non-spatial data, which can be thought of as any data that contains no direct reference to physical locations.

GIS and Spatial Analysis in Veterinary Science

Over 50 GBP Hard Copy

GIS and Spatial Analysis in Veterinary Science This book is probably the first to review the subject of geographical information systems (including remote sensing) and spatial analysis as applied to veterinary science. Topics covered include the application of GIS to epidemic disease response, to companion animal epidemiology and to the management of wildlife diseases. There are also chapters on more general issues such as parallels with human health and spatial statistics in the biomedical sciences.

GIS and Spatial Planning in the Public Sector

Hard Copy Over 50 GBP

GIS and Spatial Planning in the Public Sector Part of the Mastering GIS series, this book critically evaluates how GIS is being implemented into different aspects of spatial planning. In bringing together a range of applications from the UK, USA and continental Europe that highlight examples of good and bad practice, GIS for Public Sector Spatial Planning presents professional spatial planners with practical guidance on the successful exploitation of GIS within a public planning organisation. The book is also an invaluable resource for upper-level undergraduate and masters students taking courses in GIS, Planning, Applied Geography and Environmental Management. It discusses the uses of GIS at different operational scales (strategic, tactical, operational) and different spatial scales (national, regional, local).

GIS Applications for Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Systems

Over 50 GBP

GIS Applications for Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Systems GIS Applications for Water, Wastewater, and Stormwater Systems demonstrates that with GIS, the possibilities to map, monitor, model, and maintain (4M) systems are almost endless. With the help of new methods and case studies, this book details how GIS can be used to implement the 4M management strategy in the field of water, wastewater, and stormwater. This in-depth volume elaborates on what kind of software and data are required to develop related GIS applications, and where and how to find these applications. The book includes many case studies, and explains the type of resources that are required to implement GIS-based projects.
