GIS Tutorial: Workbook for ArcView 9, Third Edition, this year's quintessential how-to geographic information system (GIS) software instruction book, will be available in August from ESRI Press.

Newcomers to GIS and advanced users of ESRI's ArcGIS Desktop software will appreciate this edition, updated for the new ArcGIS 9.3 release by authors Wilpen L. Gorr and Kristen S. Kurland. Besides teaching fundamentals, such as how to build maps using GIS data, exercises will also walk readers through the process of how to create geodatabases and import the data. In other lessons, students will learn to:

Explore the basic data types within a GIS and use the Internet to gather GIS data.

Manage a spatial data edit session, digitize vector data, and transform the data to match real-world coordinates.

Map address data as points through a process called address geocoding.

Perform spatial analysis using geoprocessing tools and analysis workflow models.

This edition of GIS Tutorial also introduces instructions for using the ArcGIS 3D Analyst and ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extensions.

Chapter 10 teaches readers how to use ArcGIS 3D Analyst to create 3D scenes, conduct fly-throughs, build animations, and conduct line-of-sight studies.

In chapter 11, students will use the ArcGIS Spatial Analyst extension to, for example, analyze suitable sites in a city to place heart defibrillators based on raster data. The assignments in this chapter also include generating a hillshade, plotting analysis results, and using ModelBuilder to automate geoprocessing tasks.

A DVD with a 180-day trial of ArcView 9.3, along with a CD of data for use with the tutorials, comes with the book. Teacher resources and updates related to the book will be available at www.esri.com/esripress/GISTutorial.

GIS Tutorial: Workbook for ArcView 9, Third Edition (ISBN: 978-1-58948-205-0, 456 pages, $79.95), is available at online retailers worldwide, at www.esri.com/esripress, or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
