    Resources Measurements and Mapping: A Goal-Based Approach gives students a foundation in the important technical and analytical skills required to succeed in natural resources professions. Designed to function as a foundational textbook and workbook, it focuses on skill development, application, and problem-solving.

    Students learn about navigation and map-reading, compass use, topographic surveying, and vegetation sampling and analysis. They develop the preliminary spatial skills required for both Global Positioning Systems and Geographic Information Systems. They also become familiar with land cover classification.

    While many standard texts in the discipline are highly technical, Resource Measurement and Mapping focuses on field work and data analysis and emphasizes the practical skill sets that employers look for. It is well-suited to courses in earth and environmental science, field methods, geography, and natural resources management. The book can also serve as a reference guide for professionals in the field.
    The Second Edition will be published Fall 2019. ISBN: 978-1-5165-6518-4
