Global positioning systems and other means of gathering, computing, and visualizing data have led to increased documentation, new tools for planning, and more efficient ways to engage with our natural and built systems. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill will describe these geospatial technologies as they relate and are being applied to marine protected areas, coral reefs, coastal geography, and other natural areas and resources.
