Abstract Chapter 24 focuses on spatial mapping and analysis, which are methods that explicitly seek to analyse and describe the spatial elements of systems. Spatial mapping is a common starting point for many social-ecological systems (SES) studies. The chapter discusses spatial mapping and analysis, including geography, landscape ecology, remote sensing, statistics and land surveying, and gives a brief overview of relevant mapping and analytical approaches. It goes on to discuss the types of SES problems and research questions commonly addressed by this set of methods, as well as their limitations, resource implications and new emerging research directions. The chapter also includes an in-depth case study showcasing the application of spatial mapping and analysis, and suggested further readings on these methods.
