Map database construction for regional resources management and its applicability

Description

[Synopsis]

Map database of land resources (topography, soil, landform, landunit, vegetation, land degradation) and their utilization (grazing and shrub cutting areas and their intensities) in a local barley/rangeland/livestock agricultural system was constructed within GIS. The map database was found to be useful for the evaluation and integration of human influences on natural resources in such marginal agricultural systems where land degradation prevails.
