There are two things that interest me: the relation of people to each other and the relation of people to the land.” Aldo Leopold

Alex Eddy - IntroductionFor me, there is a third thing: how can technology be used to understand relationships between people and the natural landscape? How do we describe the intersections between human behavior, natural systems, science, and policy? In what ways can geospatial applications model these systems and help us make scientifically-informed, data-driven decisions?
