Reviewers required for the upcoming GIS manual

The ASPRS will be publishing the
Manual of Geographic Information Systems
soon. We are looking for Graduate students who would be interested in reviewing a section of this manual and providing a written review for publication in PE&RS.

Please click here to take a look at the Table of Contents. There are eight sections in this manual, each containing multiple chapters. You will be required to review one section in about a month's time, beginning in mid June, and provide a written review. If you are interested in reviewing (and this will require some time commitment), please send a copy of your resume to Naresh (, SAC Communications Councilor, before Monday June 09, 2009. Also, if you are interested in reviewing any particular section, please indicate that in your email (though we can't promise, we will try to have you review that section).
