A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the state-of-the-art in coastal zone GIS applications, this book critically examines the intellectual and organizational contexts of coastal GIS. The book discusses recent developments and specific applications that can be used to help marine and environmental scientists enhance their skills. The techniques presented teach GIS applications in a coastal setting, including shoreline mapping, ship borne data collection techniques, coastal decision making with GIS, and more. Covering a broad range of topics by international experts, the logical organization supplies a flow and structure to the entire book that many multi-authored texts do not have.
Contents: Introduction. Spatial Data Infrastructures. Tools and Technologies. Traditional Ecological Knowledge and Coastal GIS. Applications and Case Studies.
