Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

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.
