Abstract

The global landmine crisis was one of the most prominent humanitarian issues of the 1990s. Towards the end of the decade there was increasing concern to quantify and specify the nature and extent of the problem. Given the geographical nature of the crisis, GIS technology is perceived as playing a progressive role in demining. The paper examines the plans for implementation and the debates around GIS and society. - (AJC)
