National Conference on Environmental Problem Solving with Geopraphic Information Systems


This publication presents the technical papers presented at the National Conference on Environmental Problem Solving with Geographic Information Systems, which was held in Cincinnati, Ohio, on September 21-23, 1994. The conference was a forum for over 450 environmental professionals to exchange information and approaches on how to use geographic information systems (GIS) to define, assess, and solve various types of environmental problems. The papers presented in this publication have been organized by general topic area as follows:

The purpose of this document is to share the information presented at the conference with individuals that were unable to aftend. This document will be useful to individuals who are currently applying GIS to environmental situations or considering GIS for application in environmental problem solving. These individuals will include environmental regulatory personnel at the federal, state and local level; university professors, researchers and students; private sector personnel, including industry representatives and environmental consultants; and other interested persons. By sharing this information with a broader audience, it is hoped that the application of GIS to environmental problem solving will be conducted with a greater awareness of the power and limitations of this very useful tool.
