Item description for Landscape Analysis using Geospatial Tools by Marguerite Madden...
The subject of Landscape Analysis using Geospatial Tools is the combination of geospatial tools such as remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS), geostatistics and geovisualization (e.g., 3D displays, fly throughs, annimation) to analyze landscapes, assess human impacts on earth resources, visualize changes over time and conduct research in landscape ecology. This book truly bridges two broad disciplines, ecology and geography. More specifically, it integrates research and techniques in landscape ecology and geographic information science (GISci) which, in turn, encompasses GIS, remote sensing, GPS, spatial statistics and geovisualization. It is anticipated that this publication will be of interest to a wide audience. Case studies highlight the use of geospatial tools to assess the ecological impacts of human activities and assist in decision making for managers and policy makers.
