GIS for Science: Applying Mapping and Spatial Analytics

The first volume in the GIS for Science series, this book profiles various scientists using remote sensing, web maps within a geospatial cloud, Esri StoryMaps, and spatial analysis to address an array of issues with a geographic dimension. Using full-color spreads with plentiful maps, photographs, and charts, topics covered include climate change, natural disasters, homelessness, loss of green infrastructure, and resource shortages, among more.

This second, forthcoming volume in the GIS for Science series continues the legacy started by the first volume by telling the stories of scientists who employ data gathered from satellites, aircraft, ships, drones, and myriad other remote-sensing and on-site technologies. Topics brought to life with GIS and the broader realm of spatial data science include epidemiology in light of the COVID-19 pandemic; sustainable precision agriculture; predicting geological processes below the surface of the earth; and more.

The International Geodesign Collaboration: Changing Geography by Design

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.


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

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. This title makes an excellent companion book for anyone doing research that will be explained or shared in map form.


Getting to Know Web GIS, fourth edition

In this fully updated fourth edition, readers can dive the latest advances in Esri’s entire Web GIS platform, from the cloud server side to the client side. The book explores what's new in existing software like ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise; recent Web GIS products such as ArcGIS Experience Builder, ArcGIS Indoors, and ArcGIS QuickCapture; and discusses online spatial analysis, ArcGIS Notebooks, 3D web scenes, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and more—a perfect book for any professional looking to enhance the quality and reach of their online toolbox.



Python Scripting for ArcGIS Pro

Designed for anyone with only basic knowledge of programming, this book starts with the fundamentals of Python programming and then dives into how to write useful Python scripts that work with spatial data in ArcGIS Pro. A must for anyone wanting to simplify their ArcGIS Pro workflows and automate some repetitive tasks.


Advanced Python Scripting for ArcGIS Pro

Intended to complement the previous book listed, this book goes further into teaching how to complete more specialized Python scripts such as sharing your tools with others, creating Python script tools, and writing Python toolboxes. Use this book to further your developer skills.


Women and GIS: Mapping Their Stories

This first volume in the Women and GIS series chronicles the stories of different women from all over the globe who have made a significant impact in their respective fields of work. With gorgeous spreads and full-color photographs, this book makes an excellent read for anyone curious about working in a STEAM-related field.


Women and GIS, Volume 2: Stars of Spatial Science

Like the first volume, this book goes into depth with various women who have positively impacted an industry with GIS. Perfect for anyone with a belief (or even disbelief) that one person can make a difference in the world.
