The History of Geographic Information Systems

picThe History of Geographic Information Systems
Authored and Edited by Dr. Tim Foresman

This definitive book on the history of geographic information systems (GIS) takes account of the first 30 years development of the spatial information technology. Based on the first person accounts of the primary pioneers in the field of GIS, the book presents a comprehensive perspective on the numerous space-age technology developments and agency influences that enable this field to rapidly spread throughout the planet. Virtually every agency, municipality, state, nation, and business has incorporated GIS technology into its operations and decision support framework. From car navigation systems to the precursors of Google Earth, GIS has had a profound influence on the way society applies computer maps and spatial reasoning for commerce, transportation, land use management, and recreation. Considered a must read for any professional in the geographic, planning, engineering, or land management domains. .
