Differences between ecological land type maps produced using GIS or manual cartographic methods

Differences between ecological land type maps produced using GIS or manual cartographic methods

PEandRS, Photogrammetric Engineering and Remote Sensing 56(2): 169-173

The US Forest Service primarily develops multiple-use land maps using manual techniques. In Region 9 the basic mapping units are called Ecological Land Types (ELTs) which, on a local level, are defined by soil type, slope steepness and topographic aspect. In this study, ELTs were mapped manually for the 2900-ha University Forest in the southeastern Missouri Ozarks.
