Geographic Information Systems Agriculture

Abstract: Geographic Information System (GIS) technology is not new to academia or libraries, though there are many misconceptions about how this technology is used. This paper presents a variety of uses for GIS as they have been documented in the literature of science and agriculture. Agricultural uses of GIS are very important and widespread. It is intended that the information presented here can be used by librarians when discussing GIS with their constituent user groups. A study was conducted using citation analysis to determine the occurrence of agricultural uses of GIS versus other scientific and social disciplines. A second study was conducted to determine the most common uses of GIS technology within agricultural sub-disciplines. The technique employed in analyzing this subject is discussed, and the results of the examination are presented.

Se realizó un estudio utitizando el análisis de citas para determinar la presencia de los usos agrícolas de los SIG frente a otras disciplinas cientificas y sociales. Se realizó un segundo estudio para determinar los usos más comunes de la tecnología de SIG dentro de las subdisciplinas agricolas. Se trata la técnica empleada para analizar este tema y se presentan Ice resultados de la revisión.

What is White Supremacy

by fourtheweary

What is White Supremacy? by Elizabeth Martínez
copyright Elizabeth Martínez, February 1998.
*Workshop Definition* White Supremacy is an
historically based, institutionally perpetuated system of exploitation and
oppression of continents, nations, and peoples of color by white peoples
and nations of the European continent, for the purpose of maintaining and
defending a system of wealth, power, and privilege.
I. What does it mean to say it is a system?
The most common mistake people make when they talk about racism is
to think it is a collection of prejudices and individual acts of
discrimination
