Description

Professionals in land and environment fields are increasingly recognizing the potential for the use of GIS. They can benefit considerably from the use of an integrated framework for land resource surveys and land information management. This requires the integration of the methods used in evaluating and managing land-based resources, with the application of computerized information systems in land resource inventories. This text caters to undergraduates or MSc students who need to understand the role of GIS in a Land Information System. It should be a useful resource for planners, resource managers and environmental scientists concerned with the appraisal and management of land resources within the framework of computerized data analysis and modelling.show more
