"Introduction to Geo-Information Management" introduces the idea of integrated information systems, the importance of management in the successful implementation of such systems and the key role of spatial data. It looks at GIS in a wider context and addresses the issues of integration which are becoming so important. Key issues of GIS integration are covered, such as spatial databases, standards, corporate systems, image-based systems, multimedia etc. These are linked to the basics of information systems and organizations. Each chapter is supported by one or more case studies from around the world to highlight specific issues nd solutions that have been adopted. Written for those with a basic understanding of the key technical issues, this book bridges the gap between the very technical books and the high level reference texts and conference proceedings. This book should be of interest to advanced undergraduates and postgraduates on geographical information systems courses, and professionals involved in GIS.
