    "Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS, level 4 of the Our World GIS Education series, allows students to experience the GIS decision-making process in real-world settings. Designed for an upper-level high school or college curriculum, the five modules in this book invite students to perform sophisticated analyses in a variety of content areas. The projects in this book encourage students to make not only maps but also the type of spatial decisions that confront professionals in all walks of life. The five modules pose decisions that will have students examine location criteria, population patterns, chemical spills, storm-ravaged coastlines, and big-city crime." "Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS presumes prior GIS experience and offers step-by-step instruction along with guidelines for more independent study. This book contains all you need to complete GIS projects, including GIS software, data, and worksheets. Companion DVDs provide a wealth of instructional resources to supplement each book. Teachers new to GIS will benefit from detailed notes and suggestions for presenting the material." "The projects in this book are connected to a variety of subject areas, such as business, government, and public administration. By completing the projects, students improve their skills in critical thinking, communication, technology, and problem-solving as delineated by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills."--BOOK JACKET.
