ENVIRONMENTAL MAPPING: AN ECOLOGICAL METHODOLOGY FOR HIGHWAY IMPACT ANALYSIS (ABRIDGMENT)

ENVIRONMENTAL MAPPING IS PROPOSED AS AN ECOLOGICAL METHODOLOGY FOR SYSTEMATIC ANALYSIS OF HIGHWAY IMPACT, AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE PLANNING PROCESS. AN EXPLORATORY INVESTIGATION OF A FOREST HIGHWAY CORRIDOR WAS CONDUCTED TO DEMONSTRATE POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS. MAPS AT THREE SCALES ARE PRESENTED AND ANALYSIS, SYNTHESIS, AND DISPLAY TECHNIQUES DISCUSSED. THE METHODOLOGY IS VIEWED AS A MODELING PROCEDURE INVOLVING THE INVENTORY AND ANALYSIS OF THE REGIONAL ECOSYSTEM ELEMENTS; THE SYNTHESIS AND ORGANIZATION OF INVENTORY INFORMATION THROUGH ENVIRONMENTAL MAPPING; ANALYSIS OF ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT THROUGH MODELING TECHNIQUES; AND THE COMMUNICATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL INVENTORY AND IMPACT INFORMATION THROUGH EFFECTIVE GRAPHICS.
