Présentation de l'éditeur

This engaging text provides a solid introduction to mapmaking in the era of cloud computing. It takes students through both the concepts and technology of modern cartography, geographic information systems (GIS), and Web-based mapping. Conceptual chapters delve into the meaning of maps and how they are developed, covering such topics as map layers, GIS tools, mobile mapping, and map animation. Methods chapters take a learn-by-doing approach to help students master application programming interfaces and build other technical skills for creating maps and making them available on the Internet. The companion website offers invaluable supplementary materials for instructors and students. 
 
Pedagogical features: 

End-of-chapter summaries, review questions, and exercises. 

Extensive graphics illustrating the concepts and procedures.

Downloadable PowerPoints for each chapter.

Downloadable code files (where applicable) for the exercises.

Dr. Michael Peterson floats his knowledge of GIS cloud mapping effortlessly along to the reader 17 janvier 2015
Par Owen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Dr. Peterson is my professor of Cartography and GIS at the University of Nebraska at Omaha- so I was initially leery of being assigned this book (doesn't it seem a bit fi$hy when professors assign their own book?). However, immediately those concerns were quieted as I read the text. He is an expert in software mapping and the theory behind it, and this text brings old and new considerations of cartography into one illuminating volume. If you're just starting out learning about GIS and its applications, or are a seasoned veteran- this tome will help you understand the deeper implications of cloud mapping in an easy to follow, exercise supported fashion. Dr. Peterson has created online assignments to help the reader learn the practice of cloud mapping, all hosted from his own website free of charge.
