Examples of interpretive maps used to manage recreation
the Australian environment ministry is to launch a major initiative
over the coming year improving the use of interpretative maps
for the transfer of environmental information. This will be
achieved by an investment of $3.2 million for the accelerated
development of the Australian coastal atlas: an interactive
electronic internet service containing information on the coastal
and marine environment.
World Resources Institute
In 1998 the World
Resources Institute produced a map-based indicator of threats
to the world’s coral reefs. This provides the first map based
global analysis of the condition of coral reefs and makes a
significant advance in understanding and communicating the condition
of coral reefs.
