       Chapter 10. Application and Case studies for the 
       Sustainable Development Goals (five case studies including
       land use, agriculture, flood, watershed characterization 
       and infrastructure assessment). 
520    This textbook aims to develop a scientific knowledge base 
       on spatial information technology to communicate the 
       United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) among
       students, researchers, professionals and laymen. The book 
       improves understanding of the spatial database and 
       explains how to extract information from this for planning
       purposes. To enhance the knowledge of geoscientists and 
       environmentalists, the book describes the basic 
       fundamental concepts to advance techniques for spatial 
       data management and analysis and discusses the 
       methodology. The Geographic Information System (GIS), 
       remote sensing and Global Positioning System (GPS) are 
       presented in an integrated manner for the planning of 
       resources and infrastructure. The management of these 
       systems is discussed in a very lucid way to develop the 
       reader's skills. The proper procedure for map making and 
       spatial analysis are included along with case studies to 
       the reader. Where the first part of the book discusses the
       conceptual background, the second part deals with case 
       studies using these applications in different disciplines.
       The presented case studies include land use, agriculture, 
       flood, watershed characterization and infrastructure 
       assessment for the Sustainable Development Goals.
