CSISS Classics

Our newest collection is compiled by graduate students at the Center. The foundations of spatial analysis span many disciplines over many generations of researchers and practitioners. CSISS Classics provides summaries and illustrations of major contributions to spatial thinking in the social sciences.

GIS Cookbook

The GIS Cookbook is a collection of simple descriptions and illustrations of GIS methods written with minimal GIS jargon. The target audience are social scientists with an interest in introducing spatial thinking into their current research and who have some experience with computers but little to no exposure to GIS.


Activities and Readings in the Geography of the United States, ARGUS, introduces the spatial perspective through learning modules, exercises, and examples.
