GIS Tutorial 2: Spatial Analysis Workbook, 10.1 Edition, Released

Intermediate Workbook from Esri Press Helps Users Expand Their Analytic Skills

Redlands, California—January 17, 2013—Updating the second book in the Esri Press GIS Tutorial series, GIS Tutorial 2: Spatial Analysis Workbook, this 10.1 edition focuses on building problem-solving and spatial analysis skills using the tools in ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop.

Step by step, the workbook guides users with intermediate GIS skills to master a number of analytical procedures including working with categories, mapping quantities, performing density and overlay analysis, mapping change, measuring geographic distribution, analyzing patterns, and identifying clusters. In addition, the exercises in GIS Tutorial 2 provide practical applications of the concepts presented in the two-volume set The Esri Guide to GIS Analysis, by Andy Mitchell.

"With this book, the reader will not create any new data but will generate new files based on existing data," says author David W. Allen. "That’s because analysis isn’t about creating new data; it’s about making existing data say new things. The key is to know the tools well and design the right sequences to bring the big picture into view."

Allen is GIS manager for the City of Euless, Texas. He has taught at Tarrant County College since 1999, where he helped found one of the first GIS degree programs in Texas and establish a state standard for them. He is also the author of Getting to Know ArcGIS ModelBuilder (Esri Press, 2011) and coauthor of GIS Tutorial 3: Advanced Workbook (Esri Press, 2010).

This edition includes exercise data on DVD and access to a 180-day trial of ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop Advanced software. A detailed course guide, sample syllabus, and other resources are available for instructors.

The 10.1 edition of GIS Tutorial 2: Spatial Analysis Workbook (ISBN: 978-1-58948-337-8, 344 pages, US$79.95) is available from online retailers worldwide, at esri.com/esripress, or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
