Thematic Mapping

Land-cover products comprise essential data for a wide range of environmental studies related to biodiversity, climate, and human health. The land use/cover pattern of a region can correlate to an outcome of natural and socio-economic factors and their utilization by man in time and space. Information on land use/cover and possibilities for their optimal use is essential for the selection, planning and implementation of land use schemes to meet the increasing demands for basic human needs and welfare.
