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.
