The Global Positioning System and Geographical Information Systems, working in tandem, provide a powerful tool. Recent developments such as the removal of Selective Availability have not merely made these technologies more accurate but have also opened up a new seam of applications, particularly in location based services. The Global Positioning System and GIS is a clear text and guide to the use and integration of these powerful technologies, with each topic combining an overview with a step-by-step approach. This significantly revised and extended second edition now comes with a set of resources on a CD-ROM, including an instructor's guide, demonstration data and exercises. It is a straightforward introductory text for students and teachers on GIS/GPS courses as well as a practical and introductory field manual for mapping science professionals, giving basic practical guidance, particularly to the integrated use of ESRI's GIS software with Trimble's GPS hardware.The Global Positioning System and Geographical Information Systems, working in tandem, provide a powerful tool.
