Description

The purpose of this textbook is to provide an accessible introduction to geotechnology for a wide range of students. The techniques and approaches to problem solving, project organization and management, and data visualization are used with the intension of introducing students to the possibility of using GIS as a platform for making contributions to a wide range of programs that are concerned with social, economic, political, and environmental change. Includes activities that lead students through hands-on workflows to create flexible and functional "solutions" to specific tasks that are typical for geospatial analysts.
