Mapping Forestry describes how GIS software supports the business of forestry in today’s era of economic changes, increased global competition, and diminishing resources. In real scenarios from the United States, Brazil, Romania, Finland, and Cambodia, foresters share how they use GIS to manage commercial operations and maintain sustainable stewardship. Forest managers describe how computer-generated maps and GIS analysis help them determine the best places to build roads, whether logging in a particular area is commercially feasible, which fire-damaged areas should be restored first, and more. Mapping Forestry contains 19 chapters, each with a full-color map, featuring detailed descriptions of the types of GIS analysis that they represent, making it an excellent tool for forestry professionals.
Peter Eredics graduated in natural resource management with a major in forestry from the British Columbia Institute of Technology in 1992. Since 1993, he has been designing and managing GIS projects for forestry companies and government agencies in North America and throughout Asia. Eredics currently manages ESRI's business development and marketing efforts for the global forest products industry.
