Green Infrastructure

by Karen E. Firehock (Author)

To conserve our natural assets - our green infrastructure - we need to map them, and plan for their protection.


Just as we manage our communities' built assets such as roads and buildings, we also need to manage our natural assets, such as rivers, wetlands, forests, and prairies that support key species. We need to know their extent, their condition, and whether they need to be protected or restored. Using geographic information system (GIS) technology, Green Infrastructure: Map and Plan the Natural World describes why and how to realize that vision for a connected, protected cross country network of natural resources that is sustainable for generations to come.
