Land is fundamental resource for almost all human uses. The use of land resources shaped by the interaction of two broad set of forces:
– Human needs (socio-economic)
– Environmental features and processes (biophysical)
– Human action to the natural resources are the product of individual and group behaviors within the specific socio-economic and environmental settings
Natural resource are not uniformly distributed but vary spatially and, in consequence, the social and economic development challenges also vary spatially. In management context the spatiality of natural resources describe the development landscape as it currently exists as well as the potential pathways of change. Spatial based Information is the base for natural resource management.
