The use of geographical information systems and remote sensing for evaluating the sustainability of land-use


, : The use of geographical information systems and remote sensing for evaluating the sustainability of land-use. Evaluation for sustainable land management in the developing world Volume 2: technical papers IBSRAM proceedings no12-2: 545-562

The use of GIS to determine the sustainability of land-use systems in Phetchabun province, Thailand is described. The area is mountainous and has been cleared of forest over the last 20 yrs, and planted to maize cultivated up and down the slope. The project identified areas for replacement of maize with sweet tamarind. Information used included: soil and land use maps, Landsat images, land use and farming systems reports and social and economic data.
