Summary
Abstract: Most sustainable development decisions require trade-offs between the often
conflicting goals of different sectors GIS technology helps cross-sectoral
communication by not only providing very powerful tools for analysing
multisectoral data, but also by integrating databases of different sectors in
the same system. The Special provides a general introduction to GIS, explores
some of its most common applications (in agriculture, forestry, fisheries), and
supplies a page of links to digital datasets available worldwide. Note: For
