Case Study On Agroecological Zoning In Mountain Ecosystem

Sustainable development of mountain regions is a challenging task because the areas have highly diverse and fragile ecosystems. One of the most striking characteristics of mountains is their spatial variability. This makes the planning of the use of natural resources in the mountains more complex than any other area. In view of this, the present study was conducted in part of Kumaon Himalayas (latitudes 28o45' to 30o00'N, longitude 78o45' to 80o15') to demonstrate the use of remote sensing and GIS as a tools for agro-ecological zoning with mountain perspective (Patel et al., 2002). The methodology used in this study is outlined in the flow diagram in Figure 2. This methodology is further described as following sub heads.
