Applications in Natural Resource Management, Second Edition

About the Book

An introduction to natural resource management, Geographic Information Systems provides students with a look at Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the GIS applications they are likely to encounter in the field. Covering topics such as querying, buffering, clipping, and overlay analysis, Geographic Information Systems also delivers background information on the history of GIS, database creation, editing and acquisition, and map development. It is important to note that this text is not about how to do GIS, but is instead about the potential application of GIS to natural resources management. The applications provided can be extended to any region of the world, although the primary emphasis is on the U.S. and Canada.
