Using geographic information systems to assess conflicts between agriculture and development



Using geographic information systems to assess conflicts between agriculture and development



Landscape and Urban Planning 16(4): 333-343



The conflict between agriculture and urban development is intense in urbanizing areas of the USA and is a problem best resolved at the local level. To effectively develop and apply techniques for preserving farmland, areas of conflict must be identified. This paper describes the application of a geographic information system (GIS) for determining the location and level of conflict between agriculture and other forms of human intervention.
