Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Foreword by Sylvia Earle, one of the world's most respected marine biologists and was named one of Time magazine's Heroes of the Planet in 1998. The book comes with a CD-ROM laden with marine-oriented GIS tools: ArcView extensions and ARC Macro Language (AML) scripts, ocean data, three-dimensional marine multimedia underwater fly throughs, and a sample educational module for K-12 teachers. Many of these tools are direct demonstrations of the concepts and applications described in the chapters of the book provided by ocean GIS specialists from all over the United States, men and women in the vanguard of this last, great exploration of the earth.

From the Author

Royalties from the sales of Undersea With GIS are being donated to the Oregon chapter of the Surfrider Foundation and the Oregon State University Diversity Internship Program in Marine Sciences.
