Abstract

The book explores new approaches and applications of geospatial technologies to understand past, present and future impacts environmental policies and management practices have on the landscape. From forestry to water use, and from wildlife management to agricultural practices, this collection ofcase studies examines the application of geospatial technologies in managing natural resources, land use, and environmental systems. These case studies are current andwritten byleading international geospatial technology practitioners. They also incorporate the causative and resultant roles of environmental policies and management within a geospatial context. Thebook is scientific and research-oriented, yet appealing to a broad audience interested in environmental applications of geospatial technologies, thus making it an important reference source for the fields of GIS, remote sensing, geography, environmental policy and environmental science.
