SP 44: GIS for the Earth Sciences CD-Rom
Edited by J.R. Harris.
This volume provides the earth scientist with many examples of how a Geographic Information System (GIS) in concert with other software (statistical, image analysis) can be useful for addressing various earth science applications that involve spatial analysis of a wide range of geo-science datasets. Examples include mineral resource assessment (mineral potential modelling), analysis and visualization of multi-media geochemical data, geologic mapping, natural hazards assessment and environmental applications.
The volume is not meant to be an instructional textbook on the mechanics of GIS but rather a demonstration of how GIS can be effectively used to address a wide range of applications of interest to the earth scientist. Additionally, the book can serve as a textbook for university and college courses dealing with the application of GIS and spatial modelling.
This CD-Rom contains the entire hardcover book as a full-colour PDF as well as additional visual information, and is accompanied by a pair of 3-D glasses to better view selected images.
