About this item
This work for students, coastal managers, and policy makers explains how new technologies for geospatial data and spatial data infrastructure are being used in marine environments and coastal management. Highlighting the many stakeholders with marine and coastal interests (scientists, managers, fishermen, oil companies, tourism, and those for whom the sea is part of their culture or heritage), the book advocates an interdisciplinary, evidence-based approach to the management of oceans and coasts. The book begins with an overview chapter on geospatial coastal and marine management, followed by global cases illustrating the diversity of geoinformatics as a discipline, describing types of technology now being used to collect and process data, such as GIS, remote sensing, drones, and laser scanners. Some specific subjects examined include applied marine management with volunteered geographic information, geoinformatics for law enforcement at sea, and geospatial technologies and indigenous knowledge systems. The book contains many color maps and charts. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
