The Springer Handbook of Geographic Information is organized in three parts, Basics, Geographic Information and Applications. Some parts of the basics belong to the larger field of computer science. However, the reader gets a comprehensive view on geographic information because the topics selected from computer science have a close relation to geographic information.
The Springer Handbook of Geographic Information is written for scientists at universities and industry as well as advanced and PhD students.

Modelers and theorists consider geographic information (GI) as being a subtopic of computer science. Many aspects of geographic information are almost pure information technology while others are more geographic information. Part A is dedicated to the topics which have a close relation to information technology, including modeling, mathematics and statistics, databases, encoding, as well as data mining and knowledge discovery.
Chap. 1 Modeling of Geographic Information (C. Roswell
Chap. 2 Mathematics and Geostatistics (F. Gielsdorf, L. Gründig, T. Hillmann)
Chap. 3 Databases (T. Brinkhoff, W. Kresse)
Chap. 4 Encoding of Geographic Information (C. Portele)
Chap. 5 Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery (S.-L. Wang, W.-Z. Shi)
Part B Geographic Information
Part B addresses all geographic information topics that primarily are more specific to space and time. Staring with on the description of geographic information systems (GIS), the following chapters cover geodetic foundations, the capture of spatial and temporal data and their visualization (cartography) as well as web mapping technologies.
Chap. 6 Geographic Information Systems (GIS) (N. Bartelme)
Chap. 7 Change Detection (J. Théau)
Chap. 8 Geodesy (M. Becker)
Chap. 9 Data Capture and Geosensor Networks (J. Skaloud, M. Cramer, N. Haala, J.-O. Wallgrün, S. Nittel, W. Kresse)
Chap. 10 Geometry, Topology and Graph Theory (G. Gröger, B.
Chap. 11 Portrayal and Cartography (P. Hardy, K. Field)
Chap. 12 Geospatial Metadata (D. Danko)
Chap. 13 Standards for Geographic Information (W. Kresse, D. Danko, K. Fadaie)
Chap. 14 Web Mapping and Web Cartography (A. Neumann)
Chap. 15 Geospatial Semantic Web (J. Brodeur)
Chap. 16 Registration of Geospatial Information Elements (C.D. O'Brien, R. Lott)
Chap. 17 Security for Geospatial Information Systems (A. Matheus)
Part C Applications
Part C presents a selection of typical and important applications of geographic information. Some of the chapters address applications which may be considered as a specialization of geographic information, such as cadastre. In most of the other cases, geographic information systems (GIS) are only a tool for managing spatiotemporal data, as in planning, defense, and geology. The chapters open up a vast number of new applications, such as the chapter on location-based services. Another approach is open-source GIS, which is a license-oriented perspective on GIS and has become a lifestyle or philosophy among information technology (IT) people.
Chap. 18 Ubiquitous Geographic Information (T.J. Kim, S.-G. Jang)
Chap. 19 Legal, Law, Cadastre (M. Seifert)
Chap. 20 Spatial Planning (F. Wilke)
Chap. 21 Location Based Services (A. Zipf, M. Jöst)
Chap. 22 Movement Analysis (J. Gudmundsson, P. Laube, T. Wolle)
Chap. 23 Marine GIS (M. Jonas, L. Vetter, W. Schröder, R. Pesch)
Chap. 24 GIS in Agriculture (R. Bill, E. Nash, G. Grenzdörffer)
Chap. 25 GIS in Defense (G. Joos)
Chap. 26 GIS for Transportation (K. Choi, T.J. Kim)
Chap. 27 GIS in Geology (K. Asch, S.J. Mathers, H. Kessler)
Chap. 28 GIS for Energy and Utilities (W. (Bill) Meehan, J. Wyland)
Chap. 29 GIS in Health and Human Services (W. (Bill) Davenhall, C. Kinabrew)
Chap. 30 Open Source GIS (R.R. Vatsavai, T.E. Burk, S. Lime, M. Hugentobler, A. Neumann, C. Strobl)
Chap. 31 Open Source Tools for Environmental Modeling (A. Jolma, D.P. Ames, N. Horning, H. Mitasova, M. Neteler, A. Racicot, T. Sutton)

"This book provides an encyclopedic survey of geoinformation through 31 chapters contributed by specialists from around the globe. ... This book is both timely and up-to-date. The editors have done a very good job spanning the relevant topics for such a handbook, and each chapter is very detailed technically ... . This volume is intended as a reference manual for specialists in this area or for researchers needing specialist knowledge. Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals/practitioners." (R. A. Kolvoord, Choice, Vol. 50 (5), January, 2013)
"It attempts to provide a comprehensive overview of the state of the art and current practices in the generation, analysis, and distribution of geographic information. ... This book would be a good starting place for novices in the field. The exposition of the material is more suited for professionals with a technological focus, such as technologists, engineers, analysts, and cartographers, but managers looking for reasonably comprehensive tutorials about the specific topics covered in this book should find the relevant sections useful."
