Bean Atlas of Africa - Available Data - New

The Atlas is an ArcView 3.0 project. It is a result of a table join operation between the bean polygon map and the bean database (ref: Bean Database). The polygon map, presenting major bean producing areas, is derived from a revision/update of a previous bean point map for Africa (J.L. Gray and C. Wortmann, 1994). For purposes of the atlas, the area of interest has been defined as from 15.75°N extending South to represent sub-Saharan Africa. The project is broken down to several views and layouts. This is to make it easier to find ones' way to specific maps; and also to reduce the number of themes in a view and the number of titles in a layout. For all the views, the map units and distance units are set to decimal degrees and meters respectively (Standard Geographic Projections of the World). The view scale is set at 1:60,000,000 scale. The setup if maintained, allows one to print from 15.75°N to 37.75°S of sub-Saharan Africa well fitted with latitude - longitude grid marks and outline (depending on the display resolution).

Cabuyal, North Region in Cauca, Colombia - Available Data - New

[Enlarge Image]

Soils and land datasets of Cabuyal watershed completed with land use, land degradation risk and constraint maps. Analyses were carried out in the hillsides benchmark site, the watershed in Cabuyal, Cauca, Colombia. Stream power theory was used to create erosion indices. An erosion index map suggests that the watershed has three "hot spots" of land degradation risk. This map was combined with land use maps to analyze soil management zones.
