GIS for Science, Volume 2 (Esri Press)
Monday, 11 January 2021

This book, subtitled Applying Mapping and Spatial Analytics, is a collection of current, real-world examples of scientists using geographic information systems (GIS) and spatial data science. Co-edited by Esri Chief Scientist Dawn Wright and Esri Technology Writer and Information Designer Christian Harder and with a foreword by Pulitzer Prize winner Jared Diamond, these case studies are part of a global effort to find ways to sustain a livable environment for all life on this planet.

<ASIN:1589485874>

The contributors represent a cross section of scientists who employ data gathered from satellites, aircraft, ships, drones, and other remote-sensing and on-site technologies. This collected data is brought to life with GIS and the broader realm of spatial data science to study a range of issues including epidemiology in light of the COVID-19 pandemic; sustainable precision agriculture; predicting geological processes below the surface of the earth; using GIS near-realtime disaster response, recovery, resilience and reporting; and the latest innovations in monitoring air quality.
