Esri Press Publishes Children’s Book about GIS

REDLANDS, Calif.- Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication of Lindsey the GIS Professional. This is the first in a science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) career-themed picture book series. Lindsey describes what a geographic information system (GIS) is, what information exactly is needed to make a map, and how to collect that information. The character of Lindsey takes readers on a journey as she collects information, then shows them how to use that data to create a map of her favorite park.

Written by Tyler Danielson, a GIS professional for the Upper Midwest regional infrastructure engineering firm Bolton & Menk, Inc., Lindsey is part of Bolton & Menk’s children’s book series. Danielson’s goal was to increase awareness of the benefits that the GIS profession provides to the public and to share his love of mapping and analytics with an audience of potential future GIS professionals. Perfect for encouraging spatial thinking, Lindsey is intended for grades 1–5 and includes a glossary.

Lindsey the GIS Professional is available in print (ISBN: 9781589486126, 24 pages, US$7.99) and can be obtained from most online retailers worldwide. The print edition is available for purchase at esri.com/esripress or by calling 1-800-447-9778.
