Books

As an educator, I am committed to providing instructional materials to students around the world.  I have published numerous books and technical manuals to help GIS professionals grow in their skill and understanding of quantitative geography.  

An Introduction to Statistical Problem Solving in Geography

Now in its third edition, this highly regarded text has firmly established itself as the definitive introduction to quantitative geography. Assuming no reader background in statistics, the book lays out the proper role of statistical analysis and methods in human and physical geography, and GIS.  I have also turned this book into an online course in quantitative geography.  Click the button below to check out my course on Statistical Problem Solving in Geography.

 

An Introduction to Statistical Problem Solving in Geography (workbook)

To assist instructors in providing a complete semester long set of exercises in statistical problem solving in geography, I developed this book with the exercises used in my course Statistical Problem Solving in Geography at Salisbury University. These exercises correspond to my course textbook An Introduction to Statistical Problem Solving in Geography

How do I do that series...

In 2004, I created a little document with my students titled How do I do that in ArcGIS/Manifold.  To our surprise, the document really took off, and had tens of thousands of downloads.  As the years passed, I came out with a number of other documents in the series: How do I do that in Manifold SQLHow do I do that in QGIS, How do I do that in PostGIS, How do I do that in Arcpy, How do I do that in SpatiaLite.  Thousands of people have downloaded these manuals, and use them in their day-to-day work.  

These books provide users with code to illustrate all the commands that the USGS’s 1988 document A Process for Evaluating Geographic Information Systems said should be in any GIS. They are a great addition to any GIS professional's library.
