GIS for Environmental Management looks at complex environmental challenges and their increasingly sophisticated technological solutions by exploring case studies of the most innovative geographic information system (GIS) projects yet devised by governments, businesses, and individuals. Each study showcases GIS solutions, yet balances the technology with practical human applications.
