The international journal Science of the Total Environment is accepting submissions for a special issue on mapping the environment. The aim of this special issue is to publish works that improve our capacity to map all aspects of the environment and find the interdependences and causes of the spatial distribution of the modeled variables. As a novel approach it tries to link all the environmental aspects, for a better understanding of natural and human dimensions of the landscape.
