GIS Provides Deeper Insight into People and Location
REDLANDS, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ArcGIS?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#ArcGISlt;/agt;–Esri,
the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the
publication of Introduction
to Human Geography Using ArcGIS Online. The book is written by
professor and author J. Chris Carter, who has been teaching human
geography and GIS for more than 15 years.
Pushing readers to better understand the human society and its impact on
our planet, this college-level textbook challenges students to ponder
the why of where with questions such as these: How do
physical features contribute to unique places and regions? What can
local obesity rates tell us about food access? Why do people live where
they do? How might we anticipate—and mitigate—conflict? What data are we
missing? Are there patterns, and if there are, where?
Introduction to Human Geography Using ArcGIS Online includes
exercises in employing Esri’s ArcGIS
Online software application to explore the essential themes of human
geography, including population and migration, economic activity,
language and religion, and humans’ impact on the environment. Most maps
in the book include links that enable instructors and students to
explore the data and see how it applies to where they live. ArcGIS
Online exercises enable students to run spatial analysis on data from
the United Nations, World Bank, US Census Bureau, the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA), and other organizations. Creative instructors
can even customize the exercises.
Introduction to Human Geography Using ArcGIS Online is available
in print (ISBN: 9781589485181, 440 pages, US$74.99) and as an e-book
