Throughout the book, every chapter have its own summary of the topics and information presented in that chapter, also with questions and answers, chapter readings, web resources, and exercises which attracted me to continue reading this book. As a beginner in GIS, this text book provided me with the knowledge I need to bridge the gap between the conceptual and practical in GIS and helped me to understand the maps much better.
