Locate Press is a book publisher, focusing on the open source geospatial
Many traditional publishers see geospatial books as either scientific
content or geared primarily toward consumers. Unfortunately, this means
they don't give them the long term care they truly deserve. With
more and more technical users using open source geospatial
technology (for a wide variety of reasons!), now, more than ever, you
need comprehensive and reliable education and training resources.
You’ve come to the right place!
We know that niche is not a swear word, but a marketplace that needs
serious support. Geospatial data management is a core technology for
government and business, making practical teaching materials for
industry and higher education crucial. We also know that reliable
availability of material is key. Our books, once available, remain
available long after the first few thousand are sold so that you can
depend on them for course material and reference long into the future.
If you are an educator looking for high quality curriculum, we would like
to hear from you. Aside from training books, we are also aiming to provide
workshop guides and exercise booklets that you can use in your courses!
Academia is not the only place for learning and training, so Locate Press
supports consultants delivering workshops and seminars. If you
have solid, practical material that needs some professional polish, give
us a call. Likewise, if you need bulk orders to serve your students, or
to resell, we can help there too.
Locate Press was founded by Tyler Mitchell in 2012, it's flagship book being
The Geospatial Desktop by Gary Sherman.
In 2013 Gary Sherman took over the helm as publisher, guiding the company until 2021 when Locate Press returned to Tyler.
If you have an idea for a new book title or project, please consider submitting a proposal. We look forward to
