This first edition of GIS Applications in Forestry and Natural Resource Management is intended for introductory courses in Geographic Information Systems or computer applications in forestry and natural resource management. The emphasis of the book is on the use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) in natural resource management, or GIS applications. We provide detailed coverage of GIS operations such as querying, buffering, clipping, and overlay analysis (and others), as well as background information on the history of GIS, database creation, editing, and acquisition, and map development. The applications provided can be extended to any region of the World, although the primary emphasis is North America, as portrayed by alternative management scenarios.
