“Learning GIS with Game of Thrones” free book

Have you decided to learn to work with a Geographic Information System and you don’t know how to start? Now that the premiere of the new season of Game of Thrones series will be in a few days, we recommend you do it using the book that we have just published: “Learning GIS with Game of Thrones“.

This book compiles a series of post with practical exercises that have been published in the gvSIG project blog previously. The objective is that anyone, without previous knowledge and through a series of practical exercises, learn to handle a GIS in an entertaining and funny way.

Everything necessary to follow the course is available free of charge, including gvSIG Desktop software – a free GIS used in more than 160 countries – as well as the data (download links are available in the book) and this tutorial, distributed with a Creative Commons license.

At the end of the book we have added a section with a series of links for those who want to delve into the learning of a Geographic Information System.

You can download it from: http://downloads.gvsig.org/download/documents/books/GoT_book_GIS_gvSIG.pdf

Enjoy it!
