Abstract

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technologies are being used in three neutral resource management studies of Mobile Bay, AL. Each study is briefly discussed. In the first, the GIS was used to analyze wetland habitat changes in the bay over a 25-year period. In the second, cartographic modeling techniques are being used to assess the potential impacts of contaminated sediments on selected resources in the bay. In the third, the GIS is part of a landscape level analysis of cumulative impacts in the bay. GIS applications can provide a spatial dimension to ecological problem-solving and a powerful tool for environmental planning and decisionmaking.
