Esri has recently published a book entitled, Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS and Lidar. The scenarios in this reference feature lidar as the primary data source and lidar-related analysis as the primary skill focus. Lidar is a powerful, and increasingly popular, data source used to create elevation and terrain models with very high accuracy.
Students and self-learners can use the exercises in this book to develop their GIS skills. Downloadable data and access to a 180-day free trial of ArcGIS are available on the Esri Press “Book Resources” webpage. Instructor resources are available by contacting email@example.com.”
This is the third book in the Making Spatial Decisions series, Making Spatial Decisions Using GIS and Lidar focuses on scenario-based problem solving using an integrated workflow in ArcGIS® for Desktop.
