What is your relationship with agricultural information management standards, tools and services?
Agricultural information is management standard, tools and services are very important inputs in producing Suitability Assessment for Agricultural land as well flood vulnerability and risk management for Agricultural land. In carrying out land suitability analysis, satellite imagery covering the study area is used to identify the land use land cover and other ancillary thematic datasets such as soil maps to identify best soil in conjunction with field soil survey sampling, topographic maps showing the drainage network and ASTER satellite image showing the topography. Tools such as muliticriteria anaylsis are then used to generate the final suitability land area and map using standard FAO crop suitability criteria.
