Esri Releases New Book on Applying GIS to Resiliency Planning

How Geography Can Bring Insight to Communities Facing a Turbulent World

REDLANDS, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 16, 2021Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication of Resilient Communities across Geographies.

How do communities deal with unexpected situations on the scale of a global pandemic, for example? How much of the response is planned in advance? How well does that plan protect those most vulnerable and spread resources equitably?

In their book, Resilient Communities across Geographies, authors Sheila and Steven Steinberg examine the theory and application of different communities' abilities to respond to and recover from unexpected, disruptive situations. Examples vary from ecosystem resilience to climate adaptation to urban and cultural resilience.

Although there are many different forms of resilience, they all share some characteristic patterns. These patterns can be revealed and better understood by geographic information system (GIS) technology. The application of GIS yields actionable information culminating in a resilience plan.

In this book for academics and practitioners, readers will be able to discern patterns of theoretical frameworks, analytical methods, and GIS applications that will undoubtedly be relevant to their own fields of interest.

Resilient Communities across Geographies is available in print (ISBN: 9781589484818, 320 pages, US$49.99) and as an e-book (ISBN: 9781589484825, US$49.99).

    Now there are so many different books and pick up really hard to read. All I can say is that everyone should think about it now. I, for example, love To Kill a Mockingbird. It's a great and true to life story about social inequality and everyone should know about it. So I can tell you that you should also read an essay about it discover here and then you can understand more about it if you're interested. That's what I usually do to understand more. Good luck!
