Hundreds of geospatial ebooks now available for free
The National Academies Press – the US publisher for the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and National Research Council – is offering all of its books free in PDF format. This includes hundreds of geospatial books.
The list includes almost every book they’ve published – excluding those that were printed before PDF existed; books from the Joseph Henry Press imprint; and in cases where it is contractually prohibited. All future publications will also be available for free online, subject to these conditions.
The complete list runs to more than 4,000 titles. A search function is available fromhttp://www.nap.edu/.
