ESRI Press released Undersea with GIS

ESRI Press released Undersea with GIS, a collection of works from experts in marine biology, oceanography, aquatic resource management and other fields that charts the ways in which GIS is beginning to help improve our understanding of the oceans. Issues discussed include the current efforts to map the sea’s floor, tracking the journeys of whales and tuna to preserve species in threatened areas, developing new kinds of nautical charts to give mariners an astonishing three-dimensional view of their progress through the water, and how GIS might be used to more efficiently track the location of sunken vessels.
