This book demonstrates the application of remote-sensing data and geographic information systems to the exploration of issues often ignored by the mainstream community of geo-technical specialists such as urban forestry, urban traffic, migration or quality of life in urban areas. Case studies show how environmental science and planning, sociology, landscape ecology and architecture can benefit from employing remote-sensing data and GIS.
