Research related to social–ecological systems may be enhanced through multi-method approaches to collecting interdisciplinary data and using combinations of analytical tools. In this article we combine different types of data (interval, ordinal, nominal, spatial), methods (participant observation, survey instrument), and analytical tools (IBM Statistical Package for the Social Sciences [SPSS] and Geographic Information Systems [GIS]) to identify management relevant linkages across social and ecological dimensions in a Mediterranean suburban beach setting. In particular, we demonstrate the central role of quantitative perception data for identifying pragmatic environmental management measures in coastal recreation scenarios.
