A low-stress introduction to GIS
Forget everything you've been told about geographic information
systems. Today's simpler, less expensive, and far more refined GIS
software can be operated on a PC or Mac, and in this book you'll
discover a new approach to GIS site design and land planning that
makes the entire process easier, faster, and more designer
GIS in Site Design demonstrates how to use GIS the same way you
would work with tracing paper and markers. The only difference is
that now you'll be meeting your clients' needs to employ GIS data
and deliver products in a GIS environment.
The companion CD-ROM contains a tutorial library of all the GIS
data in the book. Using techniques explained on the CD to model
your own drawings, you'll learn to use GIS for:
* Landscape architecture, site design, and land planning
* Visual resource analysis
* Design of large sites--subdivisions, golf courses, parks,
campuses, and more
* Design of linear systems such as greenways, trails, and riparian
GIS in Site Design is an indispensable resource that will help
you master this increasingly important tool and gain access to
larger and more challenging site design projects.
