Book Description
The digital age has presented an exponential growth in the amount of data available to individuals looking to draw conclusions based on given or collected information across industries. This is evident in the environmental and agricultural industries as well. In order to successfully plan preventive measures and solve current environmental problems, efficient and effective information processing of a wide range of environmental data is needed.
Environmental and Agricultural Informatics: Concepts, Methodologies, Tools, and Applications is a vital reference source that examines the design, development, and implementation of complex agricultural and environmental information systems to quickly process and access environmental data in order to make informed decisions for the protection of the environment. Highlighting a range of topics such as information processing and management, environmental data, and sustainable agriculture, this multi-volume book is ideally designed for environmentalists, agriculturalists, researchers, professionals, academics, students, and scientists.
