Excellent marriage of the topics of GIS and Public Health issues2014年4月15日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
For the serious student wanting to learn how the topics of GIS and public health can be combined to increase understanding of a variety of health and environmental issues. Not a text for the student wanting to learn GIS - readers will need to acquire that skill elsewhere. Well written and easy to understand while exploring topics in depth.
