GIS Based Chemical Fate Modeling: Principles and Applications

Hard Copy Over 50 GBP GIS

GIS Based Chemical Fate Modeling: Principles and Applications This book covers the integration of chemical fate modeling for use in Geographic Information System (GIS) functions. It features a practical and hands-on approach that's intended for modelers preparing maps of chemical emissions, and creating landscape and climate properties within a GIS, while chemical fate calculations are performed using specialized model codes. A relevant part of the book also discusses data retrieval and processing as a basis for modeling. As such, the book offers a one-stop reference for practitioners who wish to integrate GIS with chemical modeling.

GIS for Coastal Zone Management

Over 50 GBP

GIS for Coastal Zone Management A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the state-of-the-art in coastal zone GIS applications, this book critically examines the intellectual and organizational contexts of coastal GIS. The book discusses recent developments and specific applications that can be used to help marine and environmental scientists enhance their skills. The techniques presented teach GIS applications in a coastal setting, including shoreline mapping, ship borne data collection techniques, coastal decision making with GIS, and more. The authors, international experts, cover a broad range of topics using a logical organisation, which lends the entire book a flow and structure lacking in many multi-authored texts.

GIS for Group Decision Making

GIS Over 50 GBP Hard Copy

GIS for Group Decision Making In today's society, it is very common for decisions that influence us all to be made by a combination of interested parties, all with their own agenda. In this instance, how can we be sure that the decision is the correct one, not just decided by the group with the most political influence or most money? Such groups have now become fundamental decision-making units within and between organisations in most societies and are more often than not very complex structures. The use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Groupware can be used in several practical contexts to make sure that spatial decision problems are overcome in the most effective way.
A fundamental aspect of a spatial decision problem is the matter of location. The complexity of spatial decision problems result from the multiplicity of stakeholders involved, their often conflicting interests, and the intangible variables of the decision environment. Examples of such problems include: where to locate a public facility, which brownfield redevelopment strategy to choose, which sites to select for environmental restoration, or which comprehensive land use plan to adopt. Good solutions to such problems -if they exist at all- are characterised by a certain minimum level of secretarial support; hence the decision-making process should involve experts, citizens, and interest groups alike. Such a collaborative approach to spatial decision-making needs methodology, tools, and application examples to inspire its adoption and more widespread use. This book sets out the key to the collaborative spatial decision-making approach: its theoretical basis, the requisite tools, and a number of application examples.

GIS professionals and researchers should find this an invaluable guide to an emerging area of GIS

GIS Modeling in Raster

Over 50 GBP Hard Copy

GIS Modeling in Raster The primary focus of this text is on the process of cartographic modeling and GIS modeling. The text goes beyond cartographic modeling to incorporate supplementary or complementary technologies and logics to show that spatio-temporal modeling is not limited to cartographic modeling, nor to Map Algebra. DeMers consistent, friendly and engaging style has been highly praised by reviewers of this title as well as users of his market leading Fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems.

GIS Programming: Concepts And Applications

Hard Copy Under 50 GBP

GIS Programming: Concepts And Applications Conventional GIS does not provide all the functions needed for geospatial processing. As a result, GIS customization and programming are becoming increasingly important. Focusing on automation and customization, this book describes concepts of computer programming in general and of GIS programming in particular. Python and Visual Basic for Application illustrate the geospatial techniques discussed in the text. Various applications further demonstrate concepts and methods. An included CD-ROM provides a wide range of hands-on exercises as well as sample data for programming. This complete reference is designed to bring professionals up to date in this rapidly evolving field.
