Smarter Government:
How to Govern for Results in the Information Age

Resilient Communities Across Geographies

Sheila Lakshmi Steinberg and Steven J. Steinberg

Resilient Communities across Geographies is a collection of case studies examining the application of geographic information systems (GIS) to environmental and socioeconomic challenges for analysis, planning, and, ultimately, for more resilient communities. Each chapter discusses a spatially driven approach to challenges in geography, social sciences, landscape architecture, urban planning, environmental studies, sociology, economics, migration, community development, meteorology, oceanography, and other fields.



Understanding Crime:
Analyzing the Geography of Crime

Spencer Chainey

Understanding Crime explains how to analyze the geography of crime. It explains how to apply techniques for examining spatial and temporal patterns of crime, the analysis of crime with other spatial data, and methods for evaluating the impact of geographically targeted interventions. Detailed description, explanation, and illustration of geographic analysis techniques guide readers to better understand crime, regardless of expertise, experience, and the type of GIS used.



Ethics in Everyday Places:
Mapping Moral Stress, Distress, and Injury

Tom Koch

Published in coordination with MIT Press, this book explores the ethical dilemmas of mapmakers and others in the popular media and the sciences, including graphic artists, journalists, researchers, and social scientists when developing maps as a means of investigation.



GIS and the 2020 Census:
Modernizing Official Statistics

Amor Laaribi and Linda Peters

Now that the data has been collected, this book answers the growing post-census needs for statistical data analysis, integration and dissemination, with innovative solutions. While centered on the use of GIS and other geospatial technology in support of census operations, it offers guidelines on the basic foundations for building a statistical-geospatial information infrastructure in support of the 2020 Round of Censuses, evidence-based decision making and sustainable development. 



The International Geodesign Collaboration

Thomas Fisher, Brian Orland and Carl Steinitz

Co-edited by the author of A Framework for Geodesign (Carl Steinitz), this collection demonstrates how a geodesign approach can allow multiple disciplinary teams to collaborate using GIS and design tools to explore alternative future scenarios through 51 university projects. Readers wanting to understand how other groups or organizations strategize for their own future are encouraged to dive into this collection.



Green Infrastructure:
Map and Plan the Natural World with GIS

Karen E. Firehock and R. Andrew Walker

Understand the why and how of green infrastructure (GI) mapping and implementation. A six-step process provides a framework for thinking strategically about GI planning and details how to set goals to inform GI maps to meet real needs on the ground. Using actual data to create two case studies, this book shows how the Esri model and data from the Esri Living Atlas can be adapted using local data to create a custom GI plan.



Switching to ArcGIS Pro from ArcMap

Maribeth H. Price

Switching to ArcGIS Pro from ArcMap transitions a user who is familiar with ArcMap into the mechanics of using ArcGIS Pro. Rather than teaching ArcGIS Pro from the start, this book focuses on how ArcGIS Pro is different from ArcMap. Covering the most common and important workflows required for most GIS work, Switching to ArcGIS Pro from ArcMap leverages the user’s prior experience to enable a more rapid adjustment to ArcGIS Pro.



 Women and GIS, Volume 2:
Stars of Spatial Science


From planetary scientists to civil engineers, entrepreneurs to urban planners, the strong, passionate women in Women and GIS, Volume 2: Stars of Spatial Science serve as guiding stars to motivate readers who are developing their own life stories and to inspire their potential to meaningful achievements.

Foreword by Jane Goodall.
