GIS Algorithms (SAGE Advances in Geographic Information Science and Technology Series)

GIS Algorithms (SAGE Advances in Geographic Information Science and Technology Series) Lowest new price: $39.82
Lowest used price: $36.95
List price: $60.00
Author: Ningchuan Xiao
Brand: Xiao Ningchuan

Geographic information systems (GIS) have become increasingly important in helping us understand complex social, economic, and natural dynamics where spatial components play a key role. The critical algorithms used in GIS, however, are notoriously difficult to both teach and understand, in part due to the lack of a coherent representation. GIS Algorithms attempts to address this problem by combining rigorous formal language with example case studies and student exercises.

Using Python code throughout, Xiao breaks the subject down into three fundamental areas:

  • Geometric Algorithms
  • Spatial Indexing
  • Spatial Analysis and Modelling
With its comprehensive coverage of the many algorithms involved, GIS Algorithms is a key new textbook in this complex and critical area of geography.

List price: $84.99
Author: Pinde Fu

Getting to Know Web GIS, a workbook with detailed, step-by-step exercises, teaches readers how to share resources online and build web GIS applications easily and quickly. It covers Esri’s suite of web GIS technologies including ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS for Server, web app templates, WebApp Builder, API for JavaScript, mobile GIS apps, mobile SDKs, CityEngine, and 3D web maps.
Holistic Approach: Unlike books that focus on individual products, this book teaches web GIS technologies as a holistic platform. Each chapter completes an application project using multiple products from server side to browser/client side.
Easy to Apply: You don’t have to be a developer to build web apps. This book facilitates immediate productivity. It teaches how to build engaging web apps without a single line of programming. The two chapters involving programming are easy to follow and don’t require a strong programing background.
Each of the 10 chapters in this book has
—a conceptual discussion section that gives readers the big picture and the principles,
—a system requirements section that helps instructors to prepare for the lab setup,
—a detailed tutorial section with abundant screenshots that confirm progress along the way,
—a Q/A section to answer common questions,
—an assignment section for readers to practice what they have just learned,
—and a robust reference section.
This book is the result of the author’s extensive working experience at Esri and teaching experience at Harvard University Extension and other universities. It is a practical manual for classroom lab work and on the job training for GIS students, instructors, GIS analysts, managers, web developers, and a broad range of GIS professionals.

GIS Cartography: A Guide to Effective Map Design, Second Edition

GIS Cartography: A Guide to Effective Map Design, Second Edition Lowest new price: $84.12
Lowest used price: $94.90
List price: $107.00
Author: Gretchen N. Peterson

The second edition of a bestseller, this book focuses on map design theory and technique rather than map design tools. It highlights new tools and their capabilities through visual demonstrations and explanations of new techniques such as hexagonal binning, big data point density maps, scale dependent design considerations, 3D building modeling, and so on. The new edition has a much heavier focus on digital cartography and its best practices. It has also been redesigned so that it can be used as a textbook with study questions and an end-of-chapter exercise.

Spotlight-Mode Synthetic Aperture Radar: A Signal Processing Approach

Spotlight-Mode Synthetic Aperture Radar: A Signal Processing Approach Lowest new price: $199.94
Lowest used price: $222.36
List price: $239.00
Author: Charles V. J. Jakowatz
Brand: Brand: Springer

Modern airborne and spaceborne imaging radars, known as synthetic aperture radars (SARs), are capable of producing high-quality pictures of the earth's surface while avoiding some of the shortcomings of certain other forms of remote imaging systems. Primarily, radar overcomes the nighttime limitations of optical cameras, and the cloud- cover limitations of both optical and infrared imagers. In addition, because imaging radars use a form of coherent illumination, they can be used in certain special modes such as interferometry, to produce some unique derivative image products that incoherent systems cannot. One such product is a highly accurate digital terrain elevation map (DTEM). The most recent (ca. 1980) version of imaging radar, known as spotlight-mode SAR, can produce imagery with spatial resolution that begins to approach that of remote optical imagers. For all of these reasons, synthetic aperture radar imaging is rapidly becoming a key technology in the world of modern remote sensing.
Much of the basic `workings' of synthetic aperture radars is rooted in the concepts of signal processing. Starting with that premise, this book explores in depth the fundamental principles upon which the spotlight mode of SAR imaging is constructed, using almost exclusively the language, concepts, and major building blocks of signal processing.
Spotlight-Mode Synthetic Aperture Radar: A Signal Processing Approach is intended for a variety of audiences. Engineers and scientists working in the field of remote sensing but who do not have experience with SAR imaging will find an easy entrance into what can seem at times a very complicated subject. Experienced radar engineers will find that the book describes several modern areas of SAR processing that they might not have explored previously, e.g. interferometric SAR for change detection and terrain elevation mapping, or modern non-parametric approaches to SAR autofocus. Senior undergraduates (primarily in electrical engineering) who have had courses in digital signal and image processing, but who have had no exposure to SAR could find the book useful in a one-semester course as a reference.
