From the reviews:

“This book provides an encyclopedic survey of geoinformation through 31 chapters contributed by specialists from around the globe. … This book is both timely and up-to-date. The editors have done a very good job spanning the relevant topics for such a handbook, and each chapter is very detailed technically … . This volume is intended as a reference manual for specialists in this area or for researchers needing specialist knowledge. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners.” (R. A. Kolvoord, Choice, Vol. 50 (5), January, 2013)

“It attempts to provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and current practices in the generation, analysis, and distribution of geographic information. … This book would be a good starting place for novices in the field. The exposition of the material is more suited for professionals with a technological focus, such as technologists, engineers, analysts, and cartographers, but managers looking for reasonably comprehensive tutorials about the specific topics covered in this book should find the relevant sections useful.” (R. M. Malyankar, ACM Computing Reviews, January, 2013)
