GIS Tutorial for Health
Kristen S. Kurland, Wilpen L. Gorr
A handbook for teaching GIS to healthcare professionals, this reference discusses learning GIS software in the context of visualizing and analyzing health-related data. By outlining a hands-on approach that simulates how a GIS project would be developed in the real world, the included exercises set the student loose on real data with a tangible, clearly-defined end-product as the goal. A companion CD-ROM includes additional exercises for each tutorial chapter with integrated cases that cut across chapters.
