Abstract : Landsat data in imagery form at 1:250,000 scale were utilized to produce mapping of biophysical features of the Republic of Haiti. The results of this study will serve as a baseline inventory of resources for the Direction de l'Amenagement du Territoire et de la Protection de l'Environment. As a comprehensive reconnaissance inventory, the map products should permit an initial selection of agricultural management areas of priority zones of erosion control.
