Spatial Developments in the Aruban Landscape: A multidisciplinary GIS-oriented approach
Towards a balance between socioeconomic and environmental developments in Aruba
This paper is an introduction to a series that describes spatial developments in the Aruban landscape. The aim is to provide information about the environmental issues that we face on our road to sustainability. The condition of the landscape is important as it plays a role as intermediator of environmental influences.
The aim is to review relevant information and make a first step in the establishment of an information database that includes a multiversity of data and relationships that matter to the interplay between the society, economy and the environment.
The series of papers does not pretend to provide a complete description of the spatial developments in the landscape in Aruba, but merely details some of the issues that appear relevant at present.
