Mapping the Future of America's National Parks: Stewardship through Geographic Information Systems
From the tidewater glaciers of Alaska to the River of Grass in Florida, GIS mapping is shaping the future of our national parks. Filled with colorful maps, charts, and photographs, Mapping the Future of America’s National Parks illustrates how GIS is used in the effort to repair trails and roads, locate artifacts, restore American battlefields, guide development, understand wildfires, and protect fragile lands. This book features stories that provide detailed examples of how dedicated GIS specialists, scientists, and researchers in the National Park Service are mapping and preserving America’s most special places for future generations. Mapping the Future of America's National Parks is a unique resource for national park visitors, GIS novices, and more advanced students.
