Land Use Mapping
Land use mapping is the process of identifying and categorizing land and its uses. It helps us understand how people use land and how that affects the environment. It is used to inform decisions about land use planning, conservation, and development.
Land use categories
Urban land use: Urban land use includes land used for residential, commercial, and industrial purposes. This land use is often characterized by densely populated areas with buildings, roads, and other infrastructure.
Agricultural land use: Agricultural land use includes land used to produce crops and raise livestock. This land use is often characterized by large-scale operations and farm equipment.
Recreational land use: Recreational land use includes land used for leisure activities such as hiking, camping, and fishing. This land use is often characterized by public parks, lakes, and trails.
