Abstract : Since 1973, the ERTS Program-Bolivia seeks potential application in geology, geomorphology, soils, vegetation, and landuse. The ERTS Program decided, in 1977, to study the natural resources of the country in an integrated way, using an accurate methodology to make integrated surveys that had been operated successfully in other areas of the World. For this purpose, the ERTS Program selected the methodology provided by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) that was suitable and applicable to the geographical conditions of Bolivia.
