Land Resource Assessment

Victor Sposito

The note describes a new procedure for Land Resource Assessment (LRA).  It uses Multi-Criteria Evaluation Methods (MCE) in a Geographic Systems (GIS) environment. As an example, the LRA method is applied in determining land suitability for agricultural purposes.  The method is appropriate for undertaking land use planning, town design, site selection, infrastructure studies and natural resource management studies.  Town planners, civil engineers, architects and landscape architects would find it very useful.
