The techniques of analytic mapping and of geographic information systems (GIS) have become increasingly important tools for analyzing census, crime, environmental and consumer data. The authors of this significant volume discuss data access, transformation and preparation issues, and how to select the appropriate analytic graphics techniques through a review of various GIS and common data sources, such as census products, TIGER files, and CD-ROM access. They describe each procedure, review its assumptions and requirements and provide illustrative output for sample data using selected software. Researchers and administrators who need to manage data of geographic locations will find this book a useful guide to systems for storing, retrieving, analyzing, and displaying this information.

"Geographic Information Systems are among the hottest new tools in business and government circles. While social scientists are hardly strangers to these methodologies, there are a host of as yet untried applications. David Garson and Robert Biggs have made this easier by writing an exceptionally clear and helpful invitation to this new technology for social scientists. This short (90 pages) monograph reviews the fundamentals and provides a set of additional statistical tools to enhance the utility of GIS programs for social scientists. . . ." -- John G.
