The Geographical Information Science is an invaluable book that aims to capture the basics of GIS from the perspective of a student. It addresses the GIS (Geographical Information Science) user domain including students, users and more importantly engineers. The book seeks to explain the requirements of GIS keeping in mind the general users' level of knowledge.
GIS has been around for over a decade and has established itself as a collaborative information processing system. The vast domain of information that it processes is ever increasing and so is its popularity. However, the inter-disciplinary field is not accessible to a large community of student and academicians as a subject of study. Important aspects of GIS explained and the work flow of the whole system - its output and applications are illustrated from an engineer's point of view. This book also explains the processing capability of GIS along with the mathematics and formulae involved in arriving at a solution, for students and cartographers.
This book covers 15 chapters and includes topics like Input domain of GIS, Spatial data modelling, Processing tools of GIS, 3D processing and analysis, Coordinate systems and referencing earth objects, Map projections, Output range of GIS, Computational used is GIS, Spatial interpolation, Spatial data accuracy, Evolution of Geographical information science, Application domain of GIS, Spatial decision support system and GIS: a developer's perspective. The Appendices includes topics like Analysis of GIS aspects, Glossary of definition and terms, Geo-Spatial metadata, FAQs in GIS and expansions of Acronyms.
