Web links:

There are many excellent homepages on the Internet that you can browse through at your leisure. Don’t disregard this important source of additional information. I've included a brief list of GIS and/or environment related homepages below to get you started, but the full list would run to hundreds of pages. Most sites include 'hot links' to other related sites which saves you time and energy. You may start at the Heywood et al. “Introduction to GIS” online resources ( ); this lists links to many interesting mapping, GIS and remote sensing web sites as well as providing many online learning materials for your own use.
