Modeling of the natural environment through geographic information systems

  • 1 NMU „Vassil Levski” Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria


It is anticipated that the potential benefits of GIS in environmental assessment will continue to increase. Environmental studies are related to the implementation of monitoring and modeling activities that require the use of reliable databases and validated technologies. For these purposes, conventional terrestrial measurements and methods continue to apply, but geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing are increasingly used.
