Regional and Urban GIS: A Decision Support Approach

Timothy L. Nyerges, Piotr Jankowski "Regional and Urban GIS: A Decision Support Approach"
Publisher: The Guilford Press 2009 | 299 Pages | ISBN: 160623336X | PDF | 5.5 MB

This unique text shows students and professionals how geographic information systems (GIS) can guide decision making about complex community and environmental problems. The authors’ step-by-step introduction to GIS-based decision analysis methods and techniques covers important urban and regional issues (land, transportation, and water resource management) and decision processes (planning, improvement programming, and implementation). Real-world case studies demonstrate how GIS-based decision support works in a variety of contexts, with a special focus on community and regional sustainability management. Ideal for course use, the book reinforces key concepts with end-of-chapter review questions; illustrations include 18 color plates.
