The experience of space images use for creation of land use map for the terriotory of the Svetloyar irrigation system and neighboring households is considered. The investigation territory is located in the north-west area on the right bank part of Kaspian lowland (Volgograd region).
Participatory mapping of local land use as the basis for planning and decision-making has become widespread around the globe. However, still relatively little is known about the conceptual underpinnings of geographic information produced through participatory mapping in given cultural and linguistic settings.
This LEGEND bulletin explores the relationship between agribusiness and land rights. It features articles on the power of local engagement for financial investment, using technology for mapping rights, and catalysing private sector respect for community land rights.
Land change in the Greater Antilles differs markedly among countries because of varying socioeconomic histories and global influences. We assessed land change between 2001 and 2010 in municipalities (second administrative units) of Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico.
The inability to monitor wetland drag coefficients at a regional scale is rooted in the difficulty to determine vegetation structure from remote sensing data. Based on the fact that the backscattering coefficient is sensitive to marsh vegetation structure, this paper presents a methodology to estimate the drag coefficient from a combination of SAR images, interaction models and ancillary data.
Los Sensores Remotos se han convertido en los últimos tiempos en una herramienta importante para la planificación territorial, debido a la originalidad metodológica con la cual operan y el amplio espectro de observación de la superficie terrestre.
