Workshop in Landscape Change: Proposal, Agenda, and Position Papers
The National Center for Geographic Information and Analysis (NCGIA) held a workshop in Santa Barbara from January 25-27, 2001. The workshop brought together representatives of the disciplines interested in landscape change, drawn from both the investigative sciences, such as geography, and the design disciplines, such as landscape architecture. Its purposes were to promote the building of a collaborative research community; to develop a joint research agenda; and to facilitate the exchange of ideas. It addressed its major objectives in the context of four themes: information technologies, decision making, landscape perception and assessment, and environmental and social sciences.
