Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0816527288, CD-ROM)

Conventional methods used in the planning and management of human-landscape interactions fall far short of the needs of today’s land management professionals. Monitoring, Simulation, and Management of Visitor Landscapes presents a growing body of applied research that provides decision makers with tools to maintain the ecological integrity of public places by evaluating the impacts of humans in various landscapes across space and time. This timely volume, available in both print and electronic editions, presents the latest research in this field, specifically focusing on the intersection of research and applied techniques. The contributors examine environmental management from around the world, including river traffic analysis in Melbourne, Australia; wilderness solitude and land use in the backcountry recreation areas of North America; the spatial modeling of visitor behavior at recreational areas near Vienna, Austria; the application of visibility studies and data from automatic visitor counters to simulation models in Denmark; and the integration of recreation and biodiversity in high-use environments in the Netherlands. This invaluable reference will help land managers and policy makers construct strategies for evaluating interactions between humans and the environment and expand the model of land management to include social and geographic, as well as environmental, factors.
