About the book:

GIScience for Land Resource Management is a comprehensive book that is aimed to help students, researchers, and policymakers in developing a complete understanding of the vulnerabilities and solutions of the land system through the use of spatial information sciences and satellite remote sensing. The book shall focus on the latest regional and global studies, focusing on the management of land resources using innovative techniques of spatial information sciences and satellite remote sensing. It shall also focus on the impact of anthropogenic activities related to commercialization and livelihood on the land resources at local and global levels. In addition to this, it shall address new techniques using satellite remote sensing (RS), Geographical Information System (GIS), and Global Positioning System (GPS) for environmental protection, natural resource management, and sustainable development and planning.
