Geared toward the same inclusive readership as that of Roger Tomlinsons classic, Thinking About GIS, Building a GIS is the next in a growing series establishing the fundamentals of successful GIS planning. In an easy-to-use format everyone on the team can follow (CEOs, IT directors, and GIS specialists alike), this book describes a scientific approach to IT infrastructure design specifically for GIS. Over two decades at ESRI, pilot-turned-physicist and systems consultant Dave Peters has worked with customers, colleagues, and test teams to develop a model for hardware/software selection and implementation that works for even the largest enterprise GIS deployments. He lays out both the basics and the details here, to help planners take full advantage of the latest technology: improved Web mapping services software, dual-core socket server performance and scalability, and search engine architecture improvements.
