Abstract:

"This book details a practical method for implementing a geographic information system developed by the man known as the "father of GIS." A proven success over many years of use in real public- and private-sector organizations, Dr. Roger Tomlinson's methodology has been honed through the presentation of his successful GIS planning seminars offered worldwide." "Thinking about GIS: Geographic Information System Planning for Managers is the distillation of Tomlinson's wisdom gleaned from a career spent launching large-scale GIS implementations for clients around the globe. The book is targeted at two primary audiences: senior managers who oversee GIS and other information technologies in their organizations, and the more technical managers responsible for the actual implementation of these systems. By addressing the issues of concern to both audiences, the author gives both groups a common platform on which to conduct serious GIS planning."--Jacket.
