Overview

GIS for Business and Service Planning Edited by Paul Longley, Graham Clarke The field of geographical information systems (GIS) is developing rapidly, finding applications in an ever-widening range of commercial contexts. This volume examines the practical use of GIS for business and service planning. It considers ways in which GIS may be customised to meet specific user requirements and tackle the applied research challenges of the late 1990s. GIS for Business and Service Planning:
* introduces the management, analysis and modelling of information within GIS and considers some of the basic problems and pitfalls that can occur in practice
* covers the major topics of geodemographics and how geographical information can be manipulated and merged into business application databases
* discusses the relative merits of customised versus proprietary solutions to business application databases
* examines the range of consultancy applications of GIS for business using international case studies, assessing how recent applications have benefited from research developments
* critically assesses GIS in the market place and evaluates different GIS strategies GIS for Business and Service Planning is essential reading for GIS professionals, marketeers, GIS students and management scientists.
