What is environmental spatial analysis?
The theory, methods, and technologies associated with proper handling and use of spatial data for the analysis and management of environmental problems and processes. Core technologies include geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, global positioning systems (GPS), and quantitative spatial analysis (i.e., spatial statistics and geostatistics). Example uses include land, land use and conservation planning and modeling, land use simulation and 3D visualization, watershed management, ecological restoration, landscape classification, design, and analysis, and riparian buffer analysis.
