American Journal of Geographic Information System

American Journal of Geographic Information System published articles about the recent research achievements of geographic information system. The goal of this journal is to track the development tendency of this specified system and make some contributions in the development of this fresh subject. As a comprehensive professional geographical science, geographic information system collects and analyzes various kinds of geographical data.
