Summary
This collection of new contributions by leading experts in the fields of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Geographical Information Systems (GIS), covers all the human and organisational factors which relate to the users of computer systems handling spatial data. The book will be of interest, to all users of GIS, not only those who work at the keyboard, but also those who are responsible for the selection design and management of the use of the system. Current thinking on GIS usability and user interfaces, effective training for GIS users, the human factors of screenmap displays and the optimisation of the effects of introducing GIS into an organisation are discussed. The book will also be essential reading for GIS users and planners, GIS software developers and vendors for ergonomists and for human factors engineers interested in HCI. It outlines worldwide knowledge on the most important aspect of a GIS - the human beings who use it
