Focusing on the rich biodiversity of Costa Rica, the contributors of this book demonstrate the use of geographic information systems (GIS) to enhance conservation efforts. They give an overview of the spatial nature of conservation and management and the current status of digital mapping in Costa Rica; a review of the principles behind digital mapping technologies; a series of case studies using these technologies; and the results of the Costa Rican gap analysis project.
A cutting-edge contribution to the use of remote sensing and gap analysis to conservation problems on a broad scale and a benchmark for application of similar methodologies to tropical conservation throughout the world.
