The Updated Second Edition of Fundamentals of Geographic Information Systems includes thirteen laboratory exercises integrated into the text itself. The labs are linked to particular chapter where the concepts described in the reading can be practiced immediately in a laboratory setting. The second edition of this well-received text on principles of geographic information systems (GIS) continues the author\'s style of "straight talk" in its presentation. The writing is accessible and easy to follow. Unlike most other texts, this book covers GIS design and modeling, reflecting the belief that modeling and analysis are at the heart of GIS. This enables students to understand how to use a GIS and what it does.

Electronic navigation, although still relatively new, is becoming increasingly more common, particularly on commercial vessels. This handbook offers a wealth of detailed information about how different charting systems operate and answers the most commonly asked questions regarding electronic charts (ENC, RNC, DNC) and electronic chart systems (ECDIS, RCDS, ECS). The first resource to provide so much detail on all facets of ECDIS and Electronic Charting Systems, it is certain to serve as the bible for ECDIS users for years to come. It not only provides information for training programs but also for engineers maintaining ECDIS Systems in the field. The book will be of specific interest to those who need to know about selection, implementation, operational use, benefits, and management of these systems, without getting into the technical details of how ECDIS/GIS actually works.
