JAMPLES: a computerized land evaluation system for Jamaica

JAMPLES: a computerized land evaluation system for Jamaica

Land qualities in space and time: 257-260

JAMPLES is a software package designed to determine land suitability of areas targeted for agricultural use. It matches climate, soil and topographical data with agro-ecological requirements of specific crops, indicating possible limitations. Following this 'matching' process the final suitability is determined at three levels of management. The system generates semi-quantitative results which have been used for rural planning in Jamaica.
