These multidimensional and multidisciplinary approaches call for linkages and collaborations beyond those traditionally applied in ecosystem health research. Thus, we propose that new consortia be forged to capture, analyze, and model whole ecosystems or subsets of them. The results can be applied to holistic ecosystem management strategies. A purpose of this chapter is to identify the timely need for a consortium initiative on environmental and ecological policy research using remote imagery and geospatial information with appropriate multiscale advanced raster map information science and technology to be accomplished within a short time frame.
