Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are suitable techniques for environmental monitoring and data processing. Particularly in the countries and regions where nation or region-wide basic information infrastructure consisting of spatial data, statistical materials and distribution systems has not been developed sufficiently, the expectation of GIS utilization is increasing gradually. At the Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (JIRCAS), many collaborative studies focused on GIS technology have been carried out with some national or international organizations in Syria, India, Pakistan, Thailand, China, Indonesia, etc. Various research topics were selected, such as land use changes, land degradation, desertification, soil salinity, etc. These issues concerning agro-environmental analysis are reflecting the particular problems which must be overcome for the promotion of sustainable agriculture in each region. The studies have been carried out based on long-term and short-term assignments of visiting researchers and through counterpart invitation programs under the specific schemes. In this paper, the GIS-related collaborative research conducted by JIRCAS, and a case study about salinity-affected areas in Northeast Thailand are introduced as an example of current GIS-related research activities at JIRCAS.
