Special Issue "Geospatial Technologies for Sustainable Natural Resources"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 December 2017)
Dr. Todd Robinson
The purpose of sustainable natural resource management is to ensure that resources are utilized in a way that does not adversely affect their on-going quality for current and future populations. Factors such as climate change, population growth, environmental pollution, agricultural intensification, and urban expansion can seriously affect the use and availability of resources for future generations. Geospatial Science, including spatial analytical techniques, earth observation satellites (active and passive), Volunteered Geographic Information (VGI), and crowdcourcing are new and existing technologies to map, monitor and sense our scarce natural resources. In this special issue, we invite original contributions on issues ranging from rangeland condition management, invasive species detection and modelling, biodiversity and conservation, urban sustainability, and land and forest management from all around the world. Papers incorporating novel and interesting Geospatial Science techniques are particularly encouraged.
