The authors philosophy towards teaching a GIS course is to focus on critical : Nicholas Chrisman. This exploration of geographic information and geographic information systems (GIS) describes all existing operations, and places GIS in its social and cultural context.

It views GIS simultaneously as a technical problem, an empowering application, a scientific endeavour, and a social necessity. Uses case studies to examine the various applications of each type of geographic information.* Considers geographic information as a technical problem, an empowering application, a pure science endeavor, an academic pursuit and a social necessity.* Provides a wide range of examples and applications to help readers understand technical discussions.

This exploration of geographic information and geographic information systems (GIS) expands the discussion beyond the normal input-processing-output sequence. It begins by examining the manipulations that support analytical uses of GIS, including measurement and frameworks, representations, data quality, transformation and operations, parametric mapping, simple logic and.

classification systems. The referencing in space of the phenomena may be defined in terms of a geometrically exact or a relative location.

The former uses local or world coordinate systems defined using a standard system of spheroids, projections, and coordinates which give an approximation of the form of the earth (a spheroid) onto a flat surface. application of geographic information systems (GIS) and digital mapping in censuses since technical developments in computer hardware and mapping software have already encouraged many statistical and census offices to move from traditional cartographic methods to digital mapping and geographic information systems.

A geographic information system is a computer-based system that supports the study of natural and man-made phenomena with an explicit location in space. The GIS allows data entry, data manipulation, and production of interpretable output.
