About Applied GIS

Applied GIS is an online peer-reviewed journal, published independently by its editors. It publishes articles covering specific applications of GIS (geographic information systems) that demonstrate the deployment of spatial sciences in a wide range of environmental and social science contexts. Applied GIS papers often contain user-defined maps in full colour, and tend to exemplify the kind of decision support for land and infra-structural facility management that takes into account geocodes in corporate databases. The GIS papers published respect the pace of adoption of information-age handling methods, especially in reference to spatial data. Applied GIS welcomes image-rich articles that would be too expensive to publish in print. This journal is available on an open-access basis.
