Abstract

Geographical information systems (GIS) are a relatively new and rapidly developing class of computer applications. They show considerable potential in a growing number of application domains, regional and environmental planning and management being one of them. The integration of GIS methods adds a key technology for spatial analysis to the set of tools of applied systems analysis, and environmental systems analysis in particular.

The two papers presented in this volume address the use of GIS and satellite imagery in environmental applications. Hybrid GIS, that combine both vector and raster information, are the topics of the first report that was presented at the "EARSel Workshop on Relationship of Remote Sensing and Geographical Information Systems" which took place in Hannover, Germany in September 1991. The integration of satellite imagery in a global change information system that also uses rule-based expert systems methods, together with GIS data structures and tools, is the theme of the second part. This paper was presented at the "25th International Symposium - Remote Sensing and Global Environmental Change, Tools for Sustainable Development," held in Graz, Austria, in September 1993.
