Spatial analysis is an increasingly important tool for detecting numerous risk phenomena, from natural disasters to infrastructure failure, and beyond. This book concentrates on examples based on risk prevention, but also gives approaches and advice for crisis control in the event of an actual occurrence.
The content of the book is segmented to address different landscapes; there are chapters addressing urban applications in which vulnerabilities are closely concentrated by area while others address more rural areas, where risk phenomena are more scattered.
Throughout the discussion, a range of case studies are given, providing the reader with accessible demonstrations of the practical application of this field of study.


1. From Prevention to Risk Management: Use of GIS, Sophie Sauvagnargues-Lesage.
2. Coupled Use of Spatial Analysis and Fuzzy Arithmetic: Assessing the Vulnerability of a Watershed to Phytosanitary Products, Bertrand De Bruyn, Catherine Freissinet and Michel Vauclin.
