This book expands the current frame of reference of remote sensing and geographic information specialists to include an array of socio-economic and related planning issues. Using remotely sensed data, the project explores the efficacy and policy implications of new approaches toward analyzing data (i.e., homogeneity indices), integrates approaches from human geography (i.e., Expansion Method), and explores the utility of employing geo-technologies to further the politics of local growth and smart growth coalitions (i.e., green space).
