In this part . . .

A GIS analysis is only as good as its ability to communicate the results to the user. In this part, I show you how you can use GIS to create traditional map output. Or you might opt for some radically different types of maps (called cartograms), which are sometimes even more effective at communicating your message.

But GIS output isn’t limited to maps; this part also introduces other types of output, including travel directions, lists, tables, animations, and flythroughs — all of which help boost your understanding of how to present the results of your analyses. Finally, this part offers a guide for how you can efficiently incorporate the GIS technology into your organization and take advantage of its transforming power.
