Description

The workshop began with the workshop facilitator, Neil Sampson, summarizing 17 invited papers presented on the opening day of the conference. These papers provided a state-of-the-science overview of pre-selected topics including Overview (3 papers), GIS and Remote Sensing Technologies (4 papers), Mapping (3 papers), Modeling (4 papers), and Treatments (3 papers). On the second day of the conference contributed papers were presented in four concurrent sessions, named GIS and Remote Sensing Technologies, Mapping, Modeling, and two half day sessions, Treatments and Hazard & Risk. Session chairs were responsible for coordinating sessions, introducing speakers, and timekeeping. © University of Idaho 2000. Abstract reproduced by permission.
