Review: Place matters: geospatial tools for marine science, conservation, and management in the Pacific Northwest

Although this book seems to focus on one region, the Pacific Northwest, its concepts, theory, and practical elements make it generally very applicable for readers interested in geospatial approaches to ocean issues. Furthermore, the contributors, who are very well known in the field, have certainly created a work that is easy for experts to follow, but still within the grasp of students beginning their studies in ocean and coastal management or GIS. The use of diagrams and maps is sufficient; often texts use too many such devices. The book title really says it all — place matters. The editors and contributors have made the case for the Pacific Northwest, but in a way that makes the text functional for other regions. Very few texts fall into the category of ocean and coastal geospatial theories and practice; and tools and techniques are all too often missing. This text fills that void. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above.

Place matters: geospatial tools for marine science, conservation, and management in the Pacific Northwest, ed. by Dawn J. Wright and Astrid J. Scholz.
