An Introduction to Urban Geographic Information Systems cota G305
de William E. Huxhold

A nuts-and-bolts introduction to geographic information systems (GIS), this book outlines the basic concepts and diverse uses of this technology in a local government environment, Emphasizing the value of integrating data from various sources, the book provides a set of tools for improving the way public services are delivered, resources are managed, and policy decisions are made. Rather than stressing the rapidly changing nature of GIS computer technology, the book concentrates on the concepts upon which this technology is based: information systems design, computer aided mapping, topological data structures, geographic base files, and land records systems. Special features include a chapter describing the enormous effort required to set up and manage a typical GIS project, and an appendix on who is using GIS technology and how it is being used. With fourteen case studies and a comprehensive exercise simulating authentic local government, An Introduction to Urban Geographic Information Systems is essential reading for students of geography, planning, public administration, urban affairs, and civil engineering.

CARTAS E PROJECÇÕES CARTOGRÁFICAS cota G401
de Joaquim Alves Gaspar

“A obra Cartas e Projecções Cartográficas centra-se sobre dois temas principais: as projecções cartográficas e a leitura e interpretação dos mapas. (…) Procurei, na medida do possível, que o formalismo teórico e as ferramentas matemáticas utilizadas no corpo do texto se reduzissem ao mínimo indispensável à compreensão e utilização dos conceitos e processos por parte de pessoas sem conhecimentos de matemática muito profundos. Para anexo, foram remetidas as fórmulas de transformação e as deduções relativas a algumas das projecções cartográficas mais importantes”

de Cifford H. Wood; C. Peter Keller

“Cartographic Design: Theoretical and Practical Perspectives examines how map design is integrated with modern views of information and graphic communication in both the applies and theoretical senses. (…) Special attention is placed on the opportunities, challenges and the responses cartographers are facing that have been created by the new technologies in the information era. (…) This book makes essencial reading for practicing and academic cartographers, GIS professionals and those who are interested in the logic of mapping design.”

 

Community Participation and Geographic Information Systems
Systems
cota G147
de William J. Craig / Trevor M. Harris / Daniel Weiner

Information technology is significantily afecting society, and often to the disadvantage of low income and marginalized communities. Yet there are many instances in the US and around the world where communities have used this technology advantageously. A good deal of this book reflects on public participation
in GIS concepts, best practices and constraints and opportunities – and in addition it presents detailed case studies and provides models that can be replicated by other communities. There is a focus on the conceptual and practical issues arising from the intersection of GIS with participant communities.
This book is an advancement of the discussions that arose in a Varenius workshop sponsored by the NCGIA (National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis), and based on the “Empowerment, Marginalization and Public Participation Geographic Information Systems” initiative.

DICCIONARIO DE CARTOGRAFÍA cota CR13.2.1
coordenado por I. Otero

“La presente obra trata de cubrir el vacío existente en este campo en nuestro idioma ya que si bien existen obras que cubren aspectos sectoriales, no existe hasta el momento un diccionario que recoja los términos correspondientes a las distintas áreas temáticas relacionadas con la cartografía.”

 

ELEMENTS OF CARTOGRAPHY cota G332
de Ahur H. Robinson; Joel L. Morrison ; Philip C. Muehrcke ; A. Jon Kimerling

“What we have retained from previous editions is the emphasis on the theory and practice of cartography. This book does not focus on one or another aspect of the mapping process. It is not designed to teach you how to use a particular computer platform on mapping software package. Instead, it stresses cartographic principles that span the breath of the discipline and also serves as a reference manual on cartography.”

 

Fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems cota G325
de Michael N. DeMers

My purpose in writing this book is to serve two educational missions, both reflecting the current growth of GIS technology and its intellectual content. The challenge is to provide a conceptual level of understanding of spatial analysis through the implementation of modern GIS software while presenting useful material for technical training. Thus, I have provided, wherever possible, functional links between the technician and the academic. In this way, I help technicians understand that knowledge of fundamental geographic concepts will enhance their ability to perform the day-to-day tasks required of the software. At the same time, I show academics how the tasks they request of technicians are made easier if they can formulate their models with an understanding of the technical limitations of the software and the hardware.

Geographic Information Systems: A Management Perspective
cota G344
de Stan Aronoff

This book provides a concise and practical introduction to the use of GIS technology. General concepts are introduced with examples that show a wide range of applications including agriculture, land use planning, mineral exploration, and municipal information management. Then the components of a GIS are described in the context of practical information requirements. A chapter is devoted to the fundamentals of remote sensing, which has become a major GIS data source.
The procedures and equipment used for data input and output are reviewed, highlighting tradeoffs in the use of competing technologies like scanning and manual digitizing. Data quality, data management, and GIS analysis functions are then presented from the perspective of practical methods that are used to generate information products. Finally, the process of GIS implementation is examined, addressing such organizational issues as needs analysis, system evaluations, the justification for acquiring a GIS, cost-benefit analysis, and the integration of a GIS into an organization’s existing information environment. Political and legal issues in the control of information and the liability for its dissemination often arise in the operation of a GIS. These concerns are clearly addressed with strategies for minimizing the risks to both the producer and user of GIS products. The author’s practical approach provides comprehensive coverage of the diverse procedures and technologies used in a GIS. The book should appeal to professionals and discipline specialists new to GIS as well as experienced users involved in the management of GIS facilities.

 

Geographic Information Systems: An Introduction cota G354
de Jeffrey Star e John Estes

Geographic Information Systems: An Introduction represents a timely new resource for students and professionals alike. The author’s main objective is to emphasize data integration as a philosophical basis for modern GIS, wherein a geographic information system is the appropriate tool for integrating the technologies used in gathering, analysing, and assessing spatial data. The book begins with an introduction to the vocabulary, history, and essential components of geographic information systems. Following is an exploration of the five important parts of a GIS: data acquisition, pre-processing, database management, analysis and manipulation, and producing the final output. The later chapters introduce practical applications ranging from the design and management of large facilities to research on the global carbon cycle. A final chapter examines future trends and research developments in the field of geographic information systems.

GIS Diffusion
de Ian Masser, Heather Campbell e Massimo Craglia

As the strategic value of geographic information is being increasingly recognised by many national governments and institutions like the European Comission, the importance of this book is that it provides the first systematic account and evaluation of the diffusion of geographic information handling technologies in one of their main users across Europe. Other important features of this book are that it sets the diffusion of GIS in local government in the broader theoretical context of research on the diffusion of technological innovations, and that it highlights some of the negative as well as positive potential impacts of this diffusion in society.

 

GIS and Multicriteria Decision Analysis cota G20
de Jacek Malczewski

This book is intended for the GIS and decision analysis community. It is written to serve as the textbook for courses in applied GIS and quantitative analysis. It is tergeted at senior undergraduates and postgraduate students of geography, spatial planning, and applied decision analysis. It will also be suitable for all those studying and working with spatial decision support systems. I assume that the reader has a very limited mathematical background.The emphasis is on GIS-based modeling of spatial multicriteria problems to fit procedures for which computer software is generally available. We do not attempt to detail the algorithms but instead, influence the choice of technique, the formulations of the model, and the interpretation of results. The intention is to introduce the readers to the principles of spatial multicriteria decision analysis and the use of multicriteria decision techniques in GIS environments.


GIS Organisations and People cota G400
de Derek Reeve e James Petch

GIS projects have previously been viewed primarily as technical exercises but it is now evident that the success of GIS projects depends as much upon organisational issues as upon technicalities. GIS projects have socio-organisational contexts which must be taken into account if such projects are to succeed. The book presents an overview of the “human” side of GIS, both individual and organisational.

 

The Global Positioning System and GIS cota G396
de Michael Kennedy

Michael’s intention in writing was to make it possible for readers working alone or for students in a formal course to learn how to use GPS/GIS “hands on”; to walk from this textbook ready to go into the field and start using Trimble Navigation’s GeoExplorer and ESRI’s ARC/INFO and ArcView software to collect GPS field data and enter it into a GIS for immediate use. Besides providing step-by-step instructions on how to do this, he provides appropriate background information in the form of theoretical discussions of the two technologies and examples of their use. He writes in an easy style, explaining the needed technical and scientific principles as he goes, and assuming little in the way of necessary prior instruction.

 

Ground Truth: The Social Implications of Geographic Information Systems cota G111
(eds. John Pickles)

Ground Truth: The Social Implications of Geographic Information Systems is, first, a book about the transformation of data handling and mapping capabilities that have emerged in the past two decades, and the impact they have had within the discipline of geography. Second, it is a book about the constellation of ideas, ideologies, and social practices that have emerged with the development of new forms of data handling and spatial representation. Third, it situates GIS as a tool and an approach to geographical information within wider transformations of capitalism in the late 20th century: as a tool to protect disciplinary power and access to funding; as a way of organizing more efficient systems of production; and as a reworking (and rewriting) of cultural codes-the creation of new visual imaginaries, new conceptions of earth, new modalities of commodity and consumer, and new visions of what constitutes market, territory, and empire. Our focus on GIS is thus also a reading (and a writing) of a broader history of the present, implicating issues of critical import to contemporary social transformation and the redefinition of what passes for democracy. The chapters approach these issues through analyses of technical change in specific contexts: in the discipline of geography, in the arena of production, in the use of advertising images, in the commodification of consumers, in the practice of war, and in the governance of territory.

 

HOW TO LIE WITH MAPS cota G12
de Mark Monmonier

“Originally published to wide acclaim, this lively, cleverly illustrated essay on the use and abuse of maps teaches us how to evaluate maps critically and promotes a healthy skepticism about these easy-to-manipulate models of reality. To show how maps distort, Monmonier introduces basic principles of mapmaking, gives entertaining examples of the misuse of maps in situations from zoning disputes to census reports, and covers all the typical kinds of distortions from deliberate over simplifications to the misleading use of color.”
