A excellent source for begining geographers who will be using GIS. I took this class previously where they did not assign any text, but the class with text was infinetely better since it does an awesome job of explaining, and demonstrating the principles behind GIS. From Datum / Projection to Sattelite imagery and GPS, everything is touched on.
