New Edition of GIS Management Handbook Now Available

The GIS Management Handbook, 3rd Edition, has hit the shelves.

This handbook covers concepts, practices, and tools for planning, implementing, and managing Geographic Information system programs and projects. Croswell has created a thorough, inclusive book with relevant topics including practical, functional, and modern perspectives and angles.

Written by Peter Croswell, PMP, GISP, CMS, and published by Kessey Dewitt Publications in association with URISA, the book has 474 pages of comprehensive GIS Management references and information. It is the ultimate GIS reference guide. It covers practical information, development, implementation, and operations of GIS programs.

“GoGeomatics Canada is really excited about this book. Peter has been working with us as an instructor on our GeoTech Training in 2021-22 and we are planning to offer his one of kind GIS project management training online again for 2023. The new edition of the GIS Management Handbook is a great resource for anyone in GIS in GIS management now or in the future.” – Jonathan Murphy – Founder of GoGeomatics Canada and GIS Specialist

Who needs this book? Any GIS project and program manager, GIS users, technical staff, IT managers and support personnel, contractors, consultants, product providers, students, and academicians. The book is helpful whether you are an upper-level graduate, an undergraduate of GIS courses, or in certificate programs. If you are transitioning into any one of these roles, or plan to do so in the future, it is a handy resource to have.

“My goal in writing this book has been to create a practical guide for GIS managers and aspiring managers and as a text for University students to learn sound GIS management concepts and methods to prepare them for successful careers in the field,” says Croswell

The handbook has paper and digital options. High-quality supplemental digital materials are included in the purchase of a book (documents, spreadsheets, graphics, and “real-world examples” of topics in the book). The price of the book is $145 USD, plus shipping. There is a notable discount for students and academic faculty.
