Thinking About GIS: Geographic Information System Planning for Managers, by eminent GIS pioneer Roger Tomlinson is packed with planning wisdom from the man commonly referred to as the "father of GIS", is the distillation of Tomlinson's wisdom gleaned from a career spent launching large-scale GIS implementations for clients around the globe. The book is targeted at two primary audiences: senior managers who oversee GIS and other information technologies in their organizations, and the more technical managers responsible for the actual implementation of these systems. By addressing the issues of concern to both audiences, the author gives both groups a common platform on which to conduct serious GIS planning.

Tomlison's methodology and presentation, honed through the development of his successful GIS Planning Seminars offered worldwide, is targeted at people who have been charged with launching or implementing a geographic information system for their organization. Whether you are working with an existing system or creating a GIS from scratch, taking Tomlinson's tried and true lessons to heart will help you to end up with a system that meet the expectations of the organization.
