Geographic information system (GIS) technology is an increasingly important software tool for organizing digital spatial data in the field of landscape architecture. This guide features 10 real-world case studies demonstrating how GIS is used to prepare plans for a historic streetscape, create a site design for a major vacation resort, visualize a proposed landfill, solicit public input and manage resources for a river restoration project, as well as many other practical applications. Also included is a detailed chapter on the GIS Graphic Method developed by the author to make GIS concepts accessible to landscape architects.
