This book contains state-of-the-art research studies on the concepts, theory, processes, and real world applications of geographical information systems (GIS) in business. Its chapters are authored by many of the leading experts in applying GIS and geospatial science to business. This book utilizes a wide variety of approaches and methodologies including conceptual theory development, research frameworks, quantitative and qualitative methods, case studies, systems design, DSS theory, and geospatial analysis combined with point-of-sale. Since relatively little research has been published on GIS in business, this volume is pioneering and is the principal compendium of the latest research in this area. Geographic Information Systems in Business will impact not only the underlying definitions, concepts, and theories of GIS in business and industry, but its practice as well.
