By Julien Barde, Therese Libourel, Pierre Maurel, Jean-Christophe Desconnets (auth.), D.R. Green (eds.)

This foreign selection of papers represents a particular and up to date assessment of a few of the most parts of analysis into the appliance of the geospatial applied sciences, together with geographical info platforms (GIS), distant sensing, electronic mapping, worldwide positioning platforms (GPS), databases, net know-how, and cellular field-data assortment and mapping, to coastal and marine environments world wide. aimed toward the researcher, editor, practitioner and scholar, this quantity seeks to extend the on hand literature in a swiftly increasing and evolving zone, particularly the coastal and marine setting. The booklet comes at a time while there's becoming crisis approximately worldwide warming, weather switch, and sea point upward push, all of as a way to have an effect upon coastal parts. those geospatial applied sciences provide the prospect to collect distinctive environmental facts to check the coast, to method the knowledge into details, to visualize facts and landscapes, to collect info within the box, and to contain stakeholders in coastal administration among different things.
Considerable capability now exists to elevate information, to teach and to include those applied sciences as a method to advertise better wisdom and knowing of our marine and coastal environments.
