    There is a lot more content here than I absorbed on the first reading. I kept wanting them to define layer in terms of database tables like they did data tables. Lots of examples to illustrate all the basic uses of GIS and methods of presentation of data.

    The ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis, Volume 1, is the first volume in a three-volume series. At 186 pages, it is a short book, and its brevity is consistent with its elementary (yet ironically repetitive) treatment of the subject: for the topics that are covered, the book could have been shorter. Those with experience in data analysis and visualization, even if GIS neophytes, won't find much to sink their teeth into: most chapters deal with quite elementary concepts ("Mapping the Most and Least", "Ma The ESRI Guide to GIS Analysis, Volume 1, is the first volume in a three-volume series. At 186 pages, it is a short book, and its brevity is consistent with its elementary (yet ironically repetitive) treatment of the subject: for the topics that are covered, the book could have been shorter. Those with experience in data analysis and visualization, even if GIS neophytes, won't find much to sink their teeth into: most chapters deal with quite elementary concepts ("Mapping the Most and Least", "Mapping Change", etc.) packaged in a geospatial framework. There's no theory or data science; just lots (and lots) of similar examples. This is my first GIS book, so I have no alternate recommendations or suggestions, other than to say that the book is very basic. There is a fledgling bibliography ("Where to Get More Information") that contains what I can only imagine to be somewhat dated material, given the 1999 publishing date. As I've already purchased the other two volumes in the series as well, my hope is that they will be more insightful.

    This book (relatively thin compared to many ESRI books) presents a birds' eye view of geospatial analysis (patterns and relationships) but doesn't provide any technical on how to actually create these maps. If you have data swimming around your head or are new to geospatial analysis and simply want to expose yourself to an array of geospatial concepts, this is a good book to use for brainstorming ideas.

If you're at the point in your thought process of actually creating your map, it won't be of much help in teaching you how to execute the mapping tasks using your mapping software. It's a good resource, I think, for people who have had some exposure / experience with geospatial analysis but want to refine their understanding of concepts like selecting an appropriate cell size and radius for mapping density.

    Super helpful reference, though it isn't written as one. It would be a better book if that were the case. Also, it hasn't been updated in a long time. While most of the topics are introductory enough to not have changed much, enough has that it could certainly use a new edition. Addressing either one of those would cause me to award a fourth star, and both would earn an enthusiastic five. If you're just getting into GIS, you should be picking this up.

Even if you're not going to be using ArcGIS products, it is a great source for concepts that were probably not addressed in high school or undergrad geography.

    Fine for an introduction to GIS Analysis, but completely useless without the tutorial and the software. Make sure you have all three.
