  • Editor-in-Chief is well-known as the editor of the journal Geoinformatica
  • A-Z organization allows easy, intuitive access for newcomers to field
  • Includes coverage of GIS standards in development by ISO

The Encyclopedia of GIS provides a comprehensive and authoritative treatment of a dynamic and rapidly expanding field, with entries alphabetically arranged for convenient, rapid access. The entries explain the key software, data sets, and processes used by geographers and computational scientists. All entries are contributed by world experts and peer-reviewed for accuracy and currency. Nearly 200 topics include major overviews, such as Geoinformatics, Spatial Cognition, and Location-Based Services. Shorter entries define specific terms and concepts, such as the Global Positioning System, Digital Elevation/Terrain Model, and Remote Sensing. Larger entries include key citations to the literature, and (online) internal hyperlinks to definitional entries and current standards.

The reference will be published as a print volume with abundant black and white art, and simultaneously as an XML online reference with hyperlinked citations, cross-references, four-color art, links to web-based maps, and other interactive features.
