Abstract:Computerized land information systems provide the manager with a means of rapid and comprehensive multi-resource evaluation. Spatial and descriptive data can be placed into the system and, after analysis, the results can be retrieved in map or tabular formats. Applications reach many areas of land resource management. Many types of system software and services are available to the public through government agencies, universities, and data management corporations. As with any area of developing technology, however, there are some significant problems. Further, the systems can be costly.
