An easy-to-understand reference for navigating through geographic information systems (GIS)


GIS (geographic information system) is a totally cool technology that has been called "geography on steroids." GIS is what lets you see the schools in your neighborhood or tells you where the nearest McDonald's is. GIS For Dummies tells you all about mapping terminology and digital mapping, how to locate geographic features and analyze patterns such as streets and waterways, and how to generate travel directions, customer location lists, and much more with GIS.

Explore the difference between 2D and 3D maps, create a map, or manage multiple maps

Analyze patterns that appear in maps and interpret the results

Measure distance in absolute, comparative, and functional ways

Recognize how spatial factors relate to geographic data

Discover how GIS is used in business, the military, city planning, emergency services, land management, and more

Find out how GIS can help you find out where flooding may occur
