Abstract

Agricultural land-use patterns were mapped in a region of Senegal through the combined application of remote sensing and geographic information system (GIS) technologies. This project established that airborne multispectral video data, paired with 35-mm photography, can be used for agricultural land-use mapping. Images were manually interpreted to map a series of land-use classes characteristic of recession agricultural crop production. GIS functions were used to digitize the classes and generate a series of land-use maps. The project also demonstrated the feasibility of more automated land-use mapping techniques entailing supervised classification of multispectral video data and Landsat MSS data, and migration of these data to the GIS for map generation.
