Abstract

Multispectral remote sensing from satellite platforms has led to the development of numerous applications which use digital imagery for the classification and mapping of natural resources on the earth's surface. A methodology of using satellite imagery and a Geographic Information System (GIS) for mapping the existing infrastructure of an irrigated area is described. The results of applying this technique to the Azua valley in the Dominican Republic are presented.
