The hard part of problem solving using GIS analysis is the selection of the proper tools. The only practical guide for solving geo-spatial problems independent of specific GIS software and hardware, Practical GIS Analysis will teach you how GIS tools work, and how you can use them to solve problems in both vector and grid GIS worlds. The book includes real-life applications from urban problems including real estate query, irrigation analysis, urban emergency response, address geocoding, street management, resource allocation, groundwater analysis, auto accident analysis, parcel analysis, and optimal path analysis. You can test your problem-solving abilities by trying the more than eighty GIS problems (and solutions) presented in this book. If you want to learn how GIS works, and what kinds of problems you can solve using it, this book is for you.
