About the cover image

photo of rancher with laptop

The cover photograph, from the article Participatory geospatial research and development: Interactive access to spatially dynamic time-series satellite imagery for natural resources management by Barron Orr et al., depicts an Arizona rancher holding his laptop computer, symbolizing his ability to access geospatial information and resource management tools while working in the field. The Space Grant/Land Grant Geospatial Extension Service, for which Dr. Orr works, is a program of the Cooperative Extension Service. Dr. Orr's goal in this program is to create participatory tools for rangeland management in the western United States.
