Environmental Science Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Classics from IJGIS
Twenty Years of the International Journal of Geographical Information Science and Systems
edited by Peter Fisher

Classics from IJGIS contains articles that shaped the way we approach the science of GIS, provided seeds from which grew key developments that have molded the field, opened new avenues of discovery across the landscape of modern GIScience, and some that may mark how it will change in the future.

Features:

  • Collects 19 of the most cited and influential articles ever published in IJGIS
  • Offers a unique, insightful, and personal perspective on the subject of each article, from at least one of the original authors
  • Chronicles the important milestones and catalysts that defined and initiated important areas of study and development
  • Documents the first analysis of social networks among researchers
  • Demonstrates social and serendipitous aspects of how this science has developed
  • Gives future researchers a glimpse at how these landmark papers came about
