Interests: remote sensing; geographic information systems; spatial analysis; multi-temporal trends in boreal forests; boreal wildfire severity; bias in change detection estimates; GIS analysis techniques
The focus of this Special Issue is on how GIS was used in supporting decisions in natural resource management. Topics such as viewshed or soundshed analysis, cost-path analysis, resource allocation across a linear network, emergency response, search and rescue, flood control, irrigation planning, suppression of wildfire, decision support systems, and so on are welcome. The submitted manuscript must clearly show that a decision was made and GIS was critical in supporting the decision.
