Back in December, I wrote about ESRI publishing a ‘best practices’ e-book titled “Essays on Geography and GIS.” The collection of nine ‘academic’ essays on many different aspects of GIS and geography has proven to be very popular, with more than 28,000 downloads of the book since first being published in September 2008.
The followup–“Essays on Geography and GIS, Vol. II”–is currently in production and promises to be even more exciting than the original. Even though it won’t be available until September 2009, you can already read the essays online [table of contents is tentative and subject to change]:
