"Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS, level 4 of the Our World GIS Education series, allows students to experience the GIS decision-making process in real-world settings. Designed for an upper-level high school or college curriculum, the five modules in this book invite students to perform sophisticated analyses in a variety of content areas. The projects in this book encourage students to make not only maps but also the type of spatial decisions that confront professionals in all walks of life. The five modules pose decisions that will have students examine location criteria, population patterns, chemical spills, storm-ravaged coastlines, and big-city crime." "Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS presumes prior GIS experience and offers step-by-step instruction along with guidelines for more independent study. This book contains all you need to complete GIS projects, including GIS software, data, and worksheets. Companion DVDs provide a wealth of instructional resources to supplement each book. Teachers new to GIS will benefit from detailed notes and suggestions for presenting the material." "The projects in this book are connected to a variety of subject areas, such as business, government, and public administration. By completing the projects, students improve their skills in critical thinking, communication, technology, and problem-solving as delineated by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills."--BOOK JACKET.

The third volume in the Our World GIS Education series promotes inquiry-based learning in world geography and other disciplines through the use of geographic information systems (GIS), a technology that combines interactive mapping software and geographic data with students' natural curiosity about the world. Analyzing Our World Using GIS combines the open-ended exploration inherent in GIS with the structure of nationally standardized course content, classroom activities, teacher notes, student handouts, and assessments. The book and accompanying materials help both GIS novices and experienced users conduct far-ranging geographic exploration.

Early exposure to geography, spatial thinking, and geographic information systems (GIS), helps students gain an understanding of the world around them. With the first volume in the Our World GIS Education series, teachers and students use tools of geography maps, geographic data, and GIS to progress from a basic understanding of spatial concepts toward recognizing patterns and analyzing map trends. Students reinforce and improve their basic map-reading skills and extend those skills as the book prompts them to analyze and think critically about the data.

In Europe, the emerging discipline of geodesign was earmarked by the first Geodesign Summit held in 2013 at the GeoFort, the Netherlands. Here researchers and practitioners from 28 different countries gathered to exchange ideas on how to merge the spatial sciences and design worlds. This book brings together experiences from this international group of spatial planners, architects, landscape designers, archaeologists, and geospatial scientists to explore the notion of ‘Geodesign thinking’, whereby spatial technologies (such as integrated 3D modelling, network analysis, visualization tools, and information dashboards) are used to answer ‘what if’ questions to design alternatives on aspects like urban visibility, flood risks, sustainability, economic development, heritage appreciation and public engagement. The book offers a single source of geodesign theory from a European perspective by first introducing the geodesign framework, then exploring various case studies on solving complex, dynamic, and multi-stakeholder design challenges. This book will appeal to practitioners and researchers alike who are eager to bring design analysis, intelligent planning, and consensus building to a whole new level.

Ein großer erzählter Weltatlas. Christoph Ransmayrs ›Atlas eines ängstlichen Mannes‹ ist eine einzigartige, in siebzig Episoden durch Kontinente, Zeiten und Seelenlandschaften führende Erzählung. »Ich sah...«, so beginnt der Erzähler nach kurzen Atempausen immer wieder und führt sein Publikum an die fernsten und nächsten Orte dieser Erde: In den Schatten der Vulkane Javas, an die Stromschnellen von Mekong und Donau, ins hocharktische Packeis und über die Passhöhen des Himalaya bis zu den entzauberten Inseln der Südsee. Wie Landkarten fügen sich dabei Episode um Episode zu einem Weltbuch, das in Bildern von atemberaubender Schönheit Leben und Sterben, Glück und Schicksal der Menschen kartographiert.

The capabilities of modern technology are rapidly increasing, spurred on to a large extent by the tremendous advances in communications and computing. Automated vehicles and global wireless connections are some examples of these advances. In order to take advantage of such enhanced capabilities, our need to model and manipulate our knowledge of the geophysical world, using compatible representations, is also rapidly increasing. In response to this one fundamental issue of great concern in modern geographical research is how to most effectively capture the physical world around us in systems like geographical information systems (GIS). Making this task even more challenging is the fact that uncertainty plays a pervasive role in the representation, analysis and use of geospatial information. The types of uncertainty that appear in geospatial information systems are not the just simple randomness of observation, as in weather data, but are manifested in many other forms including imprecision, incompleteness and granularization. Describing the uncertainty of the boundaries of deserts and mountains clearly require different tools than those provided by probability theory. The multiplicity of modalities of uncertainty appearing in GIS requires a variety of formalisms to model these uncertainties. In light of this it is natural that fuzzy set theory has become a topic of intensive interest in many areas of geographical research and applications This volume, Fuzzy Modeling with Spatial Information for Geographic Problems, provides many stimulating examples of advances in geographical research based on approaches using fuzzy sets and related technologies.
