Reviews

@qu:...There are not very many GIS dictionaries in print; so this addition to the field is welcome. @source:American Reference Books Annual, 2003 @qu:...Those juggling multiple languages while working with GIS will find this multilingual dictionary a welcome aid. ...This dictionary is helpful to those writing software documentation or contracts or internationalizing programming code between languages. ...Delijska has given us a solid plank to throw across the language gap. @source:Transactions in GIS, 2004
