Esri Recognizes Women’s Contributions to GIS in New Book

REDLANDS, Calif.- Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, today announced the publication of Women and GIS: Mapping Their Stories.

Throughout history, women have greatly enriched fields from science to education, leading research and directing decisions across myriad applications. Women and GIS: Mapping Their Stories reveals how ordinary girls with very different passions overcame obstacles and became extraordinary women. Using maps and analysis, these individuals contributed to their professions, and each helped the world in unique ways.

Many women—by way of their talents, hard work, and integrity—have contributed significantly to the betterment of our planet and our lives; Women and GIS: Mapping Their Stories collects the portraits of 23 such women. Connected by GIS, these women strove for excellence; didn’t give up; and, through their courageous and creative experiences, inspire all. Readers will hear stories from astronauts, oceanographers, archaeologists, ecologists, teachers, community activists, a Nobel Prize winner, and many more.

Sharing the experiences of their childhoods, the misstarts and challenges they faced, and the lessons they learned, each story shows how several women have gone on to improve the planet.

Women and GIS: Mapping Their Stories is available in softcover (ISBN: 9781589485679, 232 pages, US$14.99), in hardcover (ISBN: 9781589485280, 232 pages, US$24.99), and as an e-book (ISBN: 9781589485297, US$14.99).
