The economic and political situation of cities has shifted in recent years in light of rapid growth amidst infrastructure decline, the suburbanization of poverty and inner city revitalization. At the same time, the way that data are used to understand urban systems has changed dramatically. 

Urban Analytics offers a field-defining look at the challenges and opportunities of using new and emerging data to study contemporary and future cities through methods including GIS, Remote Sensing, Big Data and Geodemographics.

Written in an accessible style and packed with illustrations and interviews from key urban analysts, this is a groundbreaking new textbook for students of urban planning, urban design, geography, and the information sciences.

GIS (geographic information system) is a totally cool technologythat has been called “geography on steroids.” GIS iswhat lets you see the schools in your neighborhood or tells youwhere the nearest McDonald’s is. GIS For Dummies tellsyou all about mapping terminology and digital mapping, how tolocate geographic features and analyze patterns such as streets andwaterways, and how to generate travel directions, customer locationlists, and much more with GIS.

Whether you’re in charge of creating GIS applications foryour business or you simply love maps, you’ll find GIS ForDummies is packed with information. For example, you can:

  • Learn all the hardware and software necessary to collect,analyze, and manipulate GIS data
  • Explore the difference between 2D and 3D maps, create a map, ormanage multiple maps
  • Analyze patterns that appear in maps and interpret theresults
  • Measure distance in absolute, comparative, and functionalways
  • Recognize how spatial factors relate to geographic data
  • Discover how GIS is used in business, the military, cityplanning, emergency services, land management, and more
  • Find out how GIS can help you find out where flooding mayoccur

GIS for Surface Water: Using the National Hydrography Dataset

Esri Press
Show/hide full description or See full details

GIS for Surface Water: Using the National Hydrography Dataset enables scientists, managers, and students to understand the complexities of the vital surface waters of the United States. It triggers exploration and analysis by combining the ready-to-use powers of a comprehensive database of the nation’s waters and the ArcGIS® platform for geographic data analysis and mapping. This book explains how the water that exists on the landscape has been translated into a computer database, and how data about the water, such as chemistry and fish habitat, is linked to this database. Elevation data is also incorporated to produce watersheds at the micro and macro levels. This information, along with climatic data, leads to the creation of water flow and velocity estimates for every segment in the 7.5-million-mile drainage network in the United States. With the development of this complete water information system, the reader is poised to generate new knowledge of the behavior of surface water systems. 

Application of the ArcGIS suite of geographic and network analysis tools makes the science of surface water come to life. GIS for Surface Water vividly demonstrates how the vast capabilities of ArcGIS can be easily applied to the National Hydrography Dataset and companion Watershed Boundary Dataset to reveal the intricate properties of complex water networks. A variety of GIS operations are made simpler through the use of ArcGIS. You will be able to input the National Hydrography Dataset in your GIS and trace the path of water within minutes. With just a little more effort, you will be able to create enlightening flow-volume maps showing how much water flows through any given river system. By following basic principles outlined in the book, you will discover that these methods also apply to the science of surface-water systems for any nation. User stories by experienced water analysts arte also included to help buoy your knowledge of GIS for surface water.

With the use of heat sensitive technology and detailed satellite imagery, you can watch the world turn from night to day while having your morning brew. Simply add hot liquid to activate the transformation (coffee's your best bet if you're looking to shake off your own sleep as you wake up the world.) When the hot drink warms the mug, the world map slowly brightens into view, revealing accurate topography and a real-life representation of what the earth looks like from outer space. As the liquid cools, darkness descends again and the map slowly fades out, uncovering pin-pricks of light where the world's major cities are. As geography lessons go, this is way more fun than any we remember - and you get a refreshing cuppa to boot.
