Paper Abstract

This is an introduction to the study on monitoring farmland by using remote sensing and GIS in Shanxi, China. As a result, farmland in high, medium and low yield was distinguished and mapped at scale of 1:500000 for whole province; 1:100000 for Xingding Basin and 1:50000 for Dingxiang County. A monitoring system was established with support of RS, GIS and multi-media technology for classification, monitoring and utilization decision-making of farmland. It an be used in management of sustainable agriculture development in China. This study is a key project of The Scientific and Industry Technology Committee of National Defense. It was finished and appraised in 1997 with an achievement reaching at international advanced level.
