520    "The goals of this textbook are to help students acquire 
       the technical skills of using software and managing a 
       database, and develop research skills of collecting data, 
       analyzing information and presenting results. We emphasize
       that the need to investigate the potential and 
       practicality of GIS technologies in a typical planning 
       setting and evaluate its possible applications. GIS may 
       not be necessary (or useful) for every planning 
       application, and we anticipate these readings to provide 
       the necessary foundation for discerning its appropriate 
       use. Therefore, this textbook attempts to facilitate 
       spatial thinking focusing more on open-ended planning 
       questions, which require judgment and exploration, while 
       developing the analytical capacity for understanding a 
       variety of local and regional planning challenges. While 
       this textbook provides the background for understanding 
       the concepts in GIS as applicable to urban and regional 
       planning, it is best when accompanied by a hands-on 
       tutorial, which will enable readers to develop an in-depth
       understanding of the specific planning applications of 
       GIS. In the end of each chapter, we also provided several 
       discussion questions, together with contextual 
       applications through some web links."--Open Textbook
