Description

This sourcebook comprises a series of short papers on topical issues and applications of GIS, as well as directories listing useful information on geographic information in the UK. A wide range of expertise drawn from the GI community in the UK, including the Automobile Association, the Ordnance Survey, local authorities, software vendors and consultants, provides up-to-date coverage of key topics, issues and applications of widespread interest.; This edition focuses on the topical theme of GIS business applications. Divided into three sections, the book considers sources of data to drive GIS applications in the business community and contains trade directories and references for 1996. The growing importance of photogrammatic data is also covered, as is the use of census data.show more
