We offer books about Geographic Information Systems(GIS) and managing spatial databases.We focus on Open Source GIS, OGC standard compliant books, Geometric and Geographic theory bools and spatial database books. No spatial database understanding would be complete without good solid database understanding. In our database section, we offer books on the fundamentals of SQL, Good database design, and specifics on using PostgreSQL, Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, and SQLite. We also offer a selection of GPS devices and Accessories for the Neo-Geographer.

Geo spatial data and information are increasingly being used by different professionals to analyze and model different phenomena. This book looks at spatial analysis and modeling of urban growth using Cellular Automata, Remote Sensing, and Geographical Information System, with a particular emphasis on cities experiencing rapid spatial expansions. The book takes a critical look at the dynamics of spatial-temporal patterns of land use/land cover, and discusses urban growth issues and the need for urban management tools that can provide different perspective scenarios. Urban growth geosimulation that integrates social-economic and biophysical factors with dynamic spatial modeling is described. This is necessary for monitoring urban development processes, planning for urban service provision and managing urban planning information. This book illustrates through case studies, how spatial analysis and modeling built around GIS, can be used to identify ways in which cities may be better planned and managed.The book will be valuable reading for researchers, regional analysts, planners, policy makers, business analysts and geodemographers among many other professionals.
