Abstract : Due to the nature and intensity of the activities occurring on many military training areas, management of those lands can be a complex problem. The U.S. Army has adopted a standardized land condition and trend analysis approach to land management that incorporates the use of a geographic information system and satellite imagery. These tools are valuable for objective selection of field data collection sites, landcover classification, soil erosion prediction and estimation of military carrying capacity....
