Overview

The Esri Guide to GIS Analysis, Volume 3: Modeling Suitability, Movement, and Interaction describes practical applications of modeling concepts in a geographic information system (GIS). This book shows readers how they can explore spatial interaction, site selection, routing, and scheduling, and explains how to best interpret the results of the analysis. With full-color maps and illustrations and sample applications, this book will help students studying GIS and professional GIS analysts better use models to evaluate locations and analyze movement.
