  • Explores how GIS applications contribute to collaboration in decision making among those involved in sustainable development at national, regional, and local institutional levels
  • Enables you to gain a broad perspective on GIS applications for sustainable development planning via a multidisciplinary approach
  • Presents and places into context state-of-the art studies
  • Offers integrated perspectives on societal, technological, and organizational issues in the field

GIS for Sustainable Development examines how GIS applications can improve collaboration in decision making among those involved in promoting sustainable development. This volume reviews leading GIScience, providing an overview of research topics and applications that enable GIS newcomers and professionals to apply GIScience methods to sustainable spatial planning.

Divided into three parts, the book begins with an introduction to the issues of sustainability, focusing on concepts concerning GIS adoption and use within public organizations that are planning development. Part II focuses on GIScience methods, which can be used to support sustainable development and solve environmental problems. Part III presents research projects and best practices relating to different areas of application within the field.

This text provides the latest research findings, delivers complete references to related publications, and supplies you with a complete reference framework for each topic.
