A GIS Book Roundup

Book covers

Adena Schutzberg reviews Muki Huklay’s Interacting with Geospatial Technologies. Despite quibbles about the graphics and the copyediting, Adena says, “This is a solid book that pulls together the research in what hopefully will be a growing area of study for the GIS community.”

Jeff Thurston reviews The GIS 20: Essential Skills by Gina Clemmer. “The book is concise, focused and provides the details that one needs to know to work with ArcGIS, including those transitioning within ArcGIS versions. First time users or even those who may have forgotten some of the basic skills and the way to accomplish them will appreciate this book.” Via Slashgeo.

Very Spatial notes that the deadline for submitting to the 26th volume of the ESRI Map Book (previously) is November 19, 2010; a few previous volumes of the ESRI Map Book — namely, volumes 1 and 20-25 — are available online.

We first heard about Margaret Maher’s Lining Up Data in ArcGIS back in June; on ESRI Mapping Center, Maher explains the inspiration for writing the book.
