Mapping Forestry describes how geographic information system (GIS) software supports the business of forestry in today's era of economic changes, increased global competition, and diminishing resources. In twenty scenarios from the United States, Germany, Brazil, Romania, Finland, and Cambodia, foresters share how they use GIS to manage commercial operations and sustainable stewardship. Forest managers tell how computer-generated maps and GIS analysis help them determine the best places to build roads, whether logging in a particular area is commercially feasible, which fire-damaged areas should be restored first, and more. Mapping Forestry contains 20 chapters of full-color maps, featuring detailed descriptions of the types of GIS analysis that they represent, making it an excellent tool for forestry professionals.
