Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop, Second Edition is a comprehensive update to this best-selling workbook. The second edition revises existing material and adds new exercises based on ArcGIS Desktop version 9, the latest release of the world's leading geographic information systems (GIS) software.

Each chapter in Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop, Second Edition contains conceptual material followed by scripted software exercises. Readers acquire skills in a variety of areas–map symbology, data overlay, map projection, and data conversion, to name a few–as they make maps and analyze geographic data. The book culminates with a set of spatial modeling exercises using the ModelBuilder technology of ArcGIS version 9. ModelBuilder is a graphical environment for representing, automating, and solving spatial analysis problems.

Its broad scope, simple style, and practical orientation make Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop, Second Edition an ideal classroom text and an excellent resource for those learning GIS on their own. A trial version of ArcGIS Desktop version 9 and sample geographic data is included with the book. No prior knowledge of GIS or GIS software is needed.
