Just received notice of this new book on GIS if anyone is interested in such things. Probably best suited for people interested in the study of GIS. The editors are ESRI employees. ESRI are developers of the world renowned AcrGIS and ArcPad GIS software for desktop and mobile computing.

-More than 1,800 terms
-Nearly 400 full-color illustrations
-Seven encyclopedia-style appendix articles about annotation and labels, features, geometry, layers in ArcGIS® software, map projections and coordinate systems, remote sensing, and topology
-A to Z GIS is an indispensable guide and companion for anyone involved in the expanding field of geographic information systems technology.

Terms for the dictionary have been selected from GIS operations such as analysis, data management, and geocomputation; from rapidly evolving uses of GIS for modeling, GIScience, and Web-based GIS; and from the GIS foundation fields of cartography, spatial statistics, computer science, surveying, geodesy, and remote sensing. The dictionary’s colorful design and handy 5 Ľ- by 8-inch size makes it an especially accessible reference for GIS educators and students. The definitions have been written and reviewed by hundreds of subject-matter experts at ESRI, ensuring authoritative coverage.

It can be purchased at Amazon.

I have not read or reviewed the book. Additional info may be found at Amazon.
