Getting to Know Web GIS, a workbook with detailed, step-by-step exercises, teaches readers how to share resources online and build web GIS applications easily and quickly. It covers Esri's suite of web GIS technologies including ArcGIS Online, ArcGIS for Server, web app templates, WebApp Builder, API for JavaScript, mobile GIS apps, mobile SDKs, CityEngine, and 3D web maps.

Holistic Approach: Unlike books that focus on individual products, this book teaches web GIS technologies as a holistic platform. Each chapter completes an application project using multiple products from server side to browser/client side.

Easy to Apply: You don't have to be a developer to build web apps. This book facilitates immediate productivity. It teaches how to build engaging web apps without a single line of programming. The two chapters involving programming are easy to follow and don't require a strong programing background.

Each of the 10 chapters in this book has

  • a conceptual discussion section that gives readers the big picture and the principles,
  • a system requirements section that helps instructors to prepare for the lab setup,
  • a detailed tutorial section with abundant screenshots that confirm progress along the way,
  • a Q/A section to answer common questions,
  • an assignment section for readers to practice what they have just learned,
  • and a robust reference section.

This book is the result of the author's extensive working experience at Esri and teaching experience at Harvard University Extension and other universities. It is a practical manual for classroom lab work and on the job training for GIS students, instructors, GIS analysts, managers, web developers, and a broad range of GIS professionals.
