<p> This new text is written for the second GIS course taken by Geography majors. The primary focus of GIS Modeling in Raster 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. This title provides students with the tools for problem solving skills and problem identification required for jobs above the ranks of the basic GIS technician.</p>
