I just completed a graduate course in GIS and remote sensing, and we used this book as the basic guide to using GIS. Prior to this, I had always relied on other people to “make maps” for me. Now I am not only making my own maps, but also using GIS to perform many different types of analysis for my job. This book was key to that – the course I took didn’t really cover much GIS in the class materials – that was focused mostly on remote sensing and researching what others have done with GIS. I’ve sat through probably a half-dozen GIS “workshops” over the years and never really learned anything. Taking your time with this book, and no one standing over your shoulder and telling you which buttons to click, is really the best way to learn. I liked this book so much I ordered 10 more for my staff, and 9 of them have now completed it, too, and are working on their projects to earn the certificate from me that they have mastered basic ArcGIS use. I’ve now got a backlog of 15 other employees who want to be in on the next round of training! Very highly recommended!
