The next time a child asks you to explain what GIS is, you might want to read them this online book produced by engineering company Bolton & Menk. Entitled, “Lindsey the GIS Specialist“, the book is written by Tyler Danielson who is a GIS specialist with the company. Tyler wrote the book based on his sister, who also works in the GIS field.
The short book follows Lindsey, who works as a GIS specialist, as she explains what the acronym GIS means, the different types of GIS data, how she collects data, and what some of the maps she makes are used for.
The book is just one in a growing series that Bolton & Menk has produced to help explain different professions to child. There are also a couple of books about water. To see the rest of the collection, visit the Bolton & Menk library page.
