Part of the IFIP — The International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT, volume 39)


Information Technology (IT) is a useful tool for many information and decision processes related to environmental protection and management. We see IT used in such diverse areas as environmental monitoring, natural resource management, planning, public information and disaster management. Today, IT systems serve a broad range of application domains dealing with environmental questions: landscape architecture, ecology, national, regional and local government, climate research, logistics and transport, mining, water resource management, and many more.
