    Maps, remote sensing imagery, and geographic information systems (GIS) have become increasingly important in providing essential data for solving problems related to ground water contamination, water resources management, construction, land use, waste management, minerals exploration, transportation routing, and environmental site characterization. STP 1126 is a valuable resource for those who are considering using these three elements, as well as for advanced users.

    26 peer-review papers cover standardization, and applications (general technology; soil and geologic engineering; and ground water and environment). The papers, written by an interdisciplinary and international group of engineers and scientists, provide: a multidiscipline overview of applications; professional discussions and commentary on applications, including successful (as well as unsuccessful) case histories; and an understanding of needs and directions for standardization.

    For civil engineers, environmental engineers, scientists, GIS professionals, photogravmetry and remote sensing specialists, and geohydrologists. Also for land planners and policy makers using GIS.
