The first single-project GIS textbook on the market, Understanding GIS: An ArcGIS (R) Pro Project Workbook, Fourth Edition is an excellent resource for students and educators seeking a guide for an advanced, single-project-based course that incorporates GIS across a wide range of disciplines. In this third edition, readers progress through nine lessons (35 exercises), using ArcGIS Pro software from Esri to find the best location for a new park along the Los Angeles River in Southern California.
Each exercise offers step-by-step instructions, graphics to confirm exercise results, and explanations of key concepts. The book includes access to ArcGIS Desktop software, which includes ArcGIS Pro. Project data-real data, all of it updated-is downloadable from the book's resource web page.
