Mapping Forestry describes how GIS software supports the business of forestry in today's era of economic changes, increased global competition, and diminishing resources. Forest managers from around the world discuss 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 includes full-color maps and detailed descriptions of the types of GIS analysis used by foresters to manage commercial operations and sustainable stewardship.
