Esri Releases Getting to Know ArcGIS for Desktop, Third Edition

Redlands, Calif., Feb. 28, 2013—Getting to Know ArcGIS for Desktop, Third Edition, from Esri Press, is a fundamental workbook for GIS beginners that introduces the underlying principles of GIS within the context of a structured ArcGIS lesson plan. Originally published in 2001, this best-selling textbook has been enhanced for ArcGIS 10.1 compatibility and offers many new graphics and discussions about current geospatial technology tools.

Detailed illustrations and step-by-step exercises provide the foundation to acquaint readers with ArcGIS for Desktop. Key GIS concepts are introduced including creating maps and adding data, performing spatial analysis, and building and editing spatial databases—all within the context of real-world projects.

The third edition of the book organizes topic discussions for better clarity and introduces new topics such as exploring online resources and working with raster data. It also includes new exercises, data, and learning tools.

Known for its broad scope, clarity, and reliability, the book is equally well-suited for classroom use, in independent study, and as a reference. A data DVD to complete the exercises is included with the book, and online access to a 180-day trial of ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop is provided.

Getting to Know ArcGIS for Desktop, Third Edition (ISBN: 978-1-58948-308-8, 768 pages, US$84.95), is available at online retailers worldwide, at esri.com/esripress, or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
