<p>This revision builds upon the strength of the highly successful first edition. The organizing framework for Exploring Geographic Information Systems simultaneously views the subject as a technical problem, as an empowering application, as a scientific endeavor, as an academic pursuit and as a social necessity. The author's philosophy towards teaching a GIS course is to focus on critical thinking. This focus allows students to gain the ability to make judgements concerning the fitness of tools and information sources.</p>

"a novel, yet coherent and complete picture of what is involved in the science and organization of this technology...a truly excellent distillation of the comprehensive nature of geographic information handling in computerized systems." (Society of Cartographers Bulletin, Vol.35, No.2)
