A Beginner's Guide to the World of Satellite Data Over a thousand active satellites are in orbit around the Earth with applications including navigation, the transmission of data and satellite remote sensing; a space-based technology providing data accessible to everyone. The Practical Handbook of Remote Sensing offers a complete understanding...
Principles of Geographical Information Systems provides a thorough, broad-ranging account of the theory and practice of GIS. It explains why spatial data and the information systems based on them are so important in the modern world for solving a range of practical problems.
Effective use of today s vast geographic information GI resources requires more than just powerful technology for problem solving. It requires science to help us understand the way the world works, and to help us devise effective procedures for making decisions.
The only student focused, applied primer for Geocomputation in the social sciences. With example code and data sets provided as add-ons, it enables readers to work through all the examples themselves. An accessible text, specifically designed for readers who are new to Geocomputation as an area of research.

Whether you're managing a sales region, mapping city bus schedules, or analysing local cancer rates, thinking spatially opens up limitless possibilities for database users. PostGIS, a freely available open-source spatial database extender, can help create location-aware queries and features with just a few lines of SQL code.
In the five years since the publication of the first edition of A Guide to Effective Map Design, cartography and software have become further intertwined. However, the initial motivation for publishing the first edition is still valid: many GISers enter the field without so much as one hour of design...
A much needed retrospective and prospective look at how GIS technology influences and is influenced by today's post-industrial society.
This book focuses on the potential mapping of perceived urban space and spatial hierarchies as a consequence of social usage together with spatio-temporal changes as a result of factors such as demographic urban growth and decline.
This book covers all spectral domains used for observing astrophysical objects and phenomena in space. It presents extensive details on general techniques used in space astronomy, such as calibration, cryogenics in space and laser aligned structures.
