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

This overseas number of papers represents a particular and updated assessment of a few of the most components of study into the appliance of the geospatial applied sciences, together with geographical info platforms (GIS), distant sensing, electronic mapping, international positioning structures (GPS), databases, net expertise, 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 region, specifically the coastal and marine setting. The ebook comes at a time whilst there's growing to be situation approximately worldwide warming, weather switch, and sea point upward thrust, all of to be able to have an effect upon coastal parts. those geospatial applied sciences supply the prospect to collect targeted environmental information to check the coast, to approach the knowledge into details, to visualize facts and landscapes, to collect facts within the box, and to contain stakeholders in coastal administration among different things.
Considerable power now exists to elevate expertise, to coach and to include those applied sciences as a method to advertise higher wisdom and knowing of our marine and coastal environments.
