Agriculture Inventories and Studies
Agricultural Land Use Inventories (ALUIs) collect detailed data about land use and land cover in agricultural areas. This data can be used to generate a wealth of information in a broad range of fields including agricultural planning. The data includes the type and extent of agricultural activities within a region. This provides baseline information to help measure changes over time on agricultural lands. ALUI data can also be used to quantify land used, unavailable, and potentially available for agricultural purposes.
