GIS, Environmental Modelling and Engineering

GIS, Environmental Modelling and Engineering

"GIS, Environmental Modelling and Engineering" by Allan Brimicombe
First Edition
Taylor & Francis | 2003 | ISBN: 0415259231, 0415259223 | 314 pages | PDF/djvu | 6 MB

The first edition of GIS, Environmental Modeling and Engineering broke new ground by linking GIS, environmental simulation, and engineering solutions. This book aims to focuses on modelling, rather than on data collection or visualisation and aims to develop critical users for GIS and EM.





The book defines GIS, identifies how data are structured, and explains common functionality. The author discusses modeling from a neutral scientific perspective in its role of simulating phenomena and from a more specific perspective in its role within environmental science and engineering.
