New GIS Tutorial book introduced

A new book from ESRI Press shows how GIS meets the needs of a wide range of professions and technological abilities. GIS Tutorial: Workbook for ArcView 9 offers exercises and instructions that users can adapt to specific training needs, whether it is teaching GIS in a classroom or using the book for individual study. The book takes readers through the process of using a variety of GIS functionality, from creating maps and collecting data to using geoprocessing tools and models for advanced analysis. GIS Tutorial includes scripted exercises that use detailed instructions and graphics to illustrate specific ArcGIS tools and GIS workflows. Exercise assignments give precise instructions and pose real-world problem scenarios including creating a voting district map for a local election, comparing county financial information in a map, geocoding household hazardous wastes, and analyzing populations in California cities at risk for earthquakes. A fully functioning 180-day trial version of ArcView 9 software on CD-ROM and a CD of data for working through the tutorials are included with the book. GIS experts Wilpen L. Gorr and Kristen S. Kurland have prepared the book.
