Structure Of

The structure of AEZ includes the comprehensive framework for the appraisal and planning of land resources (Figure 1). The nature of analysis, which involves the combination of layers of spatial information to define zones, lends itself to application of a GIS. The major requirements of computerized GIS for an activity like agro-ecological zoning and zonal resource information of mountain areas are topographic maps, land resource maps and contour maps. These maps, containing physiographic, geographic, and bio-climatic information form primary inputs. Various outputs are generated in both tabular and map forms. Till date, good progress has been made in developing GIS based tools for land resources planning, management and monitoring at different scales.
