This is great stuff, it bites off all the basic principles of GeoData in small chunks, from the perspective of someone actually trying to build practical solutions. This would be a great alternative text book to the more academic standard texts used to teach on GIS Masters courses, at least it should develop some enthusiasm in students, I will certainly recommend this to the students on the Masters programme I’m external examiner for !
It’s just a shame it missed the google map hack phenomenon , but hey thats for the second edition !!
The movement towards Open Source geodata continues – there is still someway to go until we need to think about co-existence strategies with commerical geodata but that time will come.
