Book Details

Geographic Information System (GIS) aims to organize complex interrelation between different layers of information through a process of gathering, analysing, processing, storing, and presenting the spatial data and images available through different sources. It integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analysing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information. This book presents theory, methods, and latest research finding for problem-solving and decision-making using GIS-based technologies.

Key Features

    • Explains raster and vector data and attributive database.
    • Discusses application of GIS in geotechnical engineering, transport engineering, and water resource engineering.
    • Includes model question papers and is well illustrated.
