Creator: Huxhold, William & E. Fowler, B. Parr
Access: CD ROM [241] to accompany book
When local governments decide to go digital and use a geographic information system (GIS) to store and access information, many tasks need to be done. ArcGIS and the Digital City: A Hands-on Approach for Local Government provides step-by-step exercises using real data with ArcGIS that take you through the process of building and using GIS data in a local government. Containing the authentic nuts and bolts of daily GIS activities, this is a textbook for GIS classes in urban planning plus a workbook for local governments. After doing the exercises in ArcGIS and the Digital City: A Hands-on Approach for Local Government, you will understand the power and the problems associated with working with real data in a GIS, and you will be able to use ArcGIS Desktop to address issues crucial to cities and counties. Please Note: The exercises in this book require that you have a licensed copy of ArcInfo 9.
