While there many pages in this site, it is primarily divided into two parts:

  1. Research

  2. Teaching

A current curriculum vitae is also available. I am striving to make digital versions of my publications available through this site. If you are looking for a publication not on-line, please contact me.

Additional material related to my book, A Primer of GIS, published by Guilford Press is also available
