    GIS users create and work with maps every day—they provide the basic experience and a practical interface for the application of GIS. Maps are also the primary way that GIS users share their work with others in their organizations and beyond. Maps provide a critical context because they are both analytical and artistic. Most of these free GIS books are available in downloadable PDF format and can be read from a computer or on an eBook reader. A few are only available online. A good starting place for finding GIS books is the The National Academies Press site which offers over 4, titles in PDF format for free from its .

    Discover what a geographic information system (GIS) is, how it applies to a variety of professions, and the benefits of using GIS for a variety of applications. Praised through four highly successful editions, The GIS Book, 5th Edition now features hands-on exercises enabling readers to use free GIS software and data downloaded over the Internet to gain a first-hand understanding of the power 5/5(6). This book draws together archival research on the birth of the digital map with a reconsideration of the critical turn in mapping and cartographic thought. With rapidly shifting digital technologies, geo-surveillance, everyday cartography, privatized georeferenced data, and neoliberalization, New Lines offers a reflexive reassessment of the scholarly praxis of critical GIS, an increasingly anachronistic term.

Python for ArcGIS contains sample Python scripts and classroom-tested exercises reinforce the learning objectives. Download: Python For ArcGIS. What was GIS? More importantly, what was left of the study of maps, mapmaking, and GIS after these snowballing technocultural shifts? It is at this critical juncture that Wilson steps in. The charge of this book is to examine these shifts as they challenge and change our focus, by examining pervasive technologies that are also largely : Dillon Mahmoudi.

Mapping: A Critical Introduction to Critical GIS book and GIS examines the critical role that Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and cartography play in the study of geography and a wide range of disciplines.

By exploring topics such as race and identity, the politics of GIS, the mapping of cyberspace, surveillance, and map art, we discover exactly what it means to “use” maps and GIS critically in Cited by: GIS for Critical Infrastructure Protection serves as a reference for infrastructure owner’s police, fire, paramedics, and other government agencies responsible for crisis and emergency response, and critical infrastructure protection.

The book benefits first responders and infrastructure owners working to ensure the continued safety and operability of the nation’s infrastructure.5/5(1). Critical GIS is sometimes explained as the body of work that emerged in response to the GIS and Society critiques of the mids.

While this framing of the field obscures a number of other lines of theory and practice that are also significant, there is a strong and contingent relationship between the GIS and society critiques and critical GIS. New Lines takes the pulse of a society increasingly drawn to the power of the digital map, examining the conceptual and technical developments of the field of geographic information science as this work is refracted through a pervasive digital culture.

Matthew W. Wilson draws together archival research on the birth of the digital map with a reconsideration of the critical turn in mapping and Cited by: 5.

In New Lines: Critical Critical GIS book and the Trouble of the Map, Matthew W. Wilson addresses these theoretical and conceptual challenges and outlines an updated critical GIS agenda, starting from the radical changes that recently occurred not simply in the GIS and cartographic fields but also, more generally, in our location-aware society.

work on GIS and society, critical GIS constitutes a new research program with "hard-core" propositions and an agenda setting the problems to be worked on.

Yet the development of critical GIS, for Sheppard, is not predetermined but contingent, suggesting that develop-ments in one area occur at "the expense of foreclosing or marginalizing alternatives."File Size: KB. Essentials of Geographic Information Systems integrates key concepts behind the technology with practical concerns and real-world applications.

Recognizing that many potential GIS users are nonspecialists or may only need a few maps, this book is designed to be 4/5(12). 10 Big Ideas about Applying The Science of Where.

The Web GIS revolution is radically altering how information about the world around us is applied and shared. This is your learn-by-doing guide into ArcGIS, the powerful mapping and analysis system created by the geospatial pioneers of Esri. Teaching critical open GIS may bridge this divide, creating a transformative pedagogical space for human geography to affectively and effectively engage with open GIS technology at the level of code.

Book Description. GIS for Critical Infrastructure Protection highlights the GIS-based technologies that can be used to support critical infrastructure protection and emergency management. The book bridges the gap between theory and practice using real-world applications, real-world case studies, and the authors’ real-world experience.
