The concepts and tutorials presented in this book are for readers with little to no experience using geographic information systems (GIS) software. This book is intended for use in an introductory college-level course. It contains seven chapters, each representing approximately two-weeks of work for a three-credit 16-week semester course. Each chapter starts with text related to fundamental concepts related to geospatial science and its sub-disciplines. The chapters also include one or more tutorials designed to reinforce the concepts learned. Tutorials may take between one to six hours to complete, depending on their complexity. When possible, the authors provide an estimated time to complete tutorials. Additional references, such as video content and external websites, may also be mentioned throughout the text. Peer review is pending.
