The ArcGIS Book by Christian Harder (Editor); Clint Brown (Editor)This is your learn-by-doing guide into ArcGIS, the powerful mapping and analysis system created by the geospatial pioneers at Esri. It's not just something you read, but something you do. < The ArcGIS Book: 10 Big Ideas about Applying The Science of Where and its companion website provide access to hundreds of live maps from the worldwide ArcGIS user community. Each big idea in the title is a chapter in the book about the ways that GIS technology can unlock your data to reveal deeper insights and a better understanding of virtually any problem with a geographic dimension. Visit the book website and click on any map to start exploring and learning. Then enable your own free Learn ArcGIS account to create beautiful story maps, mobile apps, web maps, and 3D scenes that you can share online. Each chapter concludes with a hands-on lesson from the Learn ArcGIS catalog--authentic GIS activities based on real-world problem solving and data.

Modern Trends in Cartography (Springer Online) by Jan Brus (Editor); Alena Vondrakova (Editor); Vit Vozenilek (Editor)The fast exchange of information and knowledge are the essential conditions for successful and effective research and practical applications in cartography. For successful research development, it is necessary to follow trends not only in this domain, but also try to adapt new trends and technologies from other areas. Trends in cartography are also quite often topics of many conferences which have the main aim to link research, education and application experts in cartography and GIS&T into one large platform. Such the right place for exchange and sharing of knowledge and skills was also the CARTOCON2014 conference, which took place in Olomouc, Czech Republic, in February 2014 and this book is a compilation of the best and most interesting contributions. The book content consists of four parts. The first part New approaches in map and atlas making collects studies about innovative ways in map production and atlases compilation. Following part of the book Progress in web cartography brings examples and tools for web map presentation. The third part Advanced methods in map use includes achievement of eye-tracking research and users' issues. The final part Cartography in practice and research is a clear evidence that cartography and maps played the significant role in many geosciences and in many branches of the society. Each individual paper is original and has its place in cartography.
