Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS: A Workbook, Second Edition, provides scenario-based lessons that develop GIS skills and critical thinking. Students will use organized workflows, spatial analysis, and visualization to make decisions rooted in real-world issues about crime, hazards, hurricanes, demographics, and urban planning. Designed for a college curriculum, Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS: A Workbook develops GIS skills using step-by-step instructions, guided activities that reinforce learned concepts, and independent projects that encourage students to find local data and situations. The first edition was part of the Our World GIS Education series published by Esri Press, which won the 2008 Geographic Excellence in Media award from the National Council for Geographic Education. Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS: A Workbook includes data for the exercises. A 180-day trial of ArcGIS Desktop 10 and in-depth instructor resources are also provided.
