GIS: Geographic Information Systems: Find Reference Sources

A guide to resources, tutorials and other information about ArcGIS, Remote Sensing and Cartography.

What are reference works?

One way to think about reference works is that they are publications that researchers "refer" to rather than read cover-to-cover (most of the time).

Common types of reference materials include:

  • encyclopedias
  • almanacs
  • bibliographies
  • dictionaries
  • directories
  • guidebooks
  • handbooks
  • indexes
  • manuals
  • yearbooks

Reference works are all about the big picture. They are helpful for finding:

  • definitions
  • formulas
  • codes
  • standards
  • topic overviews
  • background information
  • career information
