    © Springer International Publishing AG 2017. The natural environment provides shelter, food, water and many kinds of resources to sustain human life on Earth. For thousands of years people have used these resources without causing global environmental damages, but this has changed dramatically due to technological advancements. Fortunately, developed technologies (particularly geographic information systems and remote sensing) can also be applied to protect the environment and support sustainable resource management. This chapter presents a short overview of the major environmental issues that can be addressed with positioning technologies and remote sensing.
