Summary

Written by a team of technical and education specialists including Tim Ormsby, Eileen J. Napoleon, Robert Burke, Carolyn Groessl, and Laura Bowden, Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop is a hands-on guide for classroom lab work or on-the-job training.

Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop introduces principles of GIS as it teaches the mechanics of using ESRI's leading technology. Key concepts are combined with detailed illustrations and step-by-step exercises to acquaint readers with the building blocks of ArcGIS Desktop including ArcMap, for displaying and querying maps, ArcCatalog, for organizing geographic data, and ModelBuilder, for diagramming and processing solutions to complex spatial analysis problems.

Its broad scope, simple style, and practical orientation make this book an ideal classroom text and an excellent resource for those learning GIS on their own. A data CD for working through the exercises and a fully functioning 180-day trial DVD ArcGIS Desktop 10 software is included.

Good introductory book March 29, 2011
by
I rented this textbook from ecampus, it's about Getting to Know ArcGIS Desktop is a very good introductory textbook to ESRI's latest software. It is easy to read and the exercises are easy to follow and are a great teaching tool. This book covers basic GIS tasks and will provide a solid foundation for future learning. However, I do not think this textbook will be useful to persons already experienced with ArcGIS as advanced topics are not covered. Overall, very good tutorial.
