6608.3 - Spatial analysis to mapping homogeous units for environmental planning. Border of Tabasco-Chiapas states, Mexico

Thursday, July 6
3:30 PM - 3:50 PM
Location: Maryland C

Land-use planning helps to assess alternative uses for land within limited re-sources and identify priority locations for the design and prioritization of policies of landuse and adequate management, for establishment of programs and pro-jects for environmental restoration, in order to reduce the impact of extreme weather events. To assess such alternatives it is necessary to gather, store, analyze and communicate different types of data and information, as well as identify spatial patterns. In this activities the spatial analysis an modelling are useful tools. This study proposes a territorial arrangement with emphasis on forestry and agro-forestry systems, based on zoning of lands aptitude and their current landuse. These elements are modelled through rules of decision, which were implemented through a conditional algorithm, using the "Modeller" of ERDAS Imagine module, Version 10.0. The result is a proposal of territorial arrangement in units that are organized hierarchically into zones, sub-zones and management units, according to functions of protection, conservation, potential use and restoration of natural resources. The territorial arrangement proposed in different levels of spatial detail, will allow the entities responsible for the land-use planning, designing policies, programs and projects that contribute to a sustainable use of the resources of the region studied; being the zones the units most suitable to make a plan at the re-gional level, basin or state (small-scale); the zub-zones at a lower level (municipal-ity-sub-basin) and finally the management units, components for decision mak-ing at a more local level (sub-watershed-community /ejido).
