About this book

This book mainly targets senior undergraduate and graduate students, but also environmental managers will find it useful. It deals with the theory and applications of GIS in marine sciences (mainly oceanography and fisheries), however related disciplines will be covered (e.g. global positioning system, remote sensing, sonar mapping, statistical modeling, geostatistical analysis etc). The textbook will serve as a comprehensive text with extensive additional material (a dedicated website with related data, specific GIS applications, statistical exercises and useful links).


1. Marine geographical information systems
2. Technologies and techniques of marine GIS
3. Marine GIS Applications
4. GIS in fisheries science
5. Future needs and trends in marine GIS
