The book uses case studies to explain how GIS can be used to answer location-based questions:
- Can work crews respond more efficiently to service calls?
- Where do police and fire department calls for service originate?
- Does citizen satisfaction with city services vary across the community?
- Are calls for service originating from the same neighborhood about the same problem? Why?
The book also includes a short history of GIS.
