    The ability to effectively maintain the functions of the ecosystem is closely related to the assessment of land resources within a conservation-utilization balance. Land degradation is one of the most significant environmental treats on arid region ecosystems in terms of the use of these resources. In this chapter, the aim was to attract the attention to land degradation processes in Turkey Author: Selen Deviren Saygin. The irrigation system at Sabu oasis in Leh district, Ladakh (located within the Jammu and Kashmir state of India), is described in detail. One might expect irrigation water in an arid environment to be shared and used in a highly restrictive way. The example of Sabu shows that this is not actually the case. Furthermore, the irrigation system of Sabu allows for some flexibility in water Cited by: Whilst the majority of topographic surveys can be carried out using more conventional survey equipment, many projects can be completed quicker and more efficiently by using either 3D laser scanning or cutting edge survey drone technology. Large jobs that would once have taken weeks can now be completed in a fraction of the time/5(3).

Remote sensing is the study of a region from a distance, particularly from an airplane or a spacecraft. It is a tool that can be used in conjunction with other methods of research and investigation.

This tool is especially applicable to the study of the deserts and arid lands of the Earth because of their immense size and their inaccessibility to detailed study by conventional means. it is essential that the reference system for the topographic survey co-ordinates, the geodetic control and aids to navigation (reference stations, lights, beacons, etc.) is consistent with the reference system used for the rest of the hydrographic survey.

We perform the most complex topographic surveys, including land measurement, boundaries, tree surveys, building and structures. In addition, we can provide digital 3d models or 2d maps. We provide all types of topographical surveys at scales from through to using the latest robotic and reflectorless total stations, real time GPS (RTK).

The topographic survey will also show above ground improvements like buildings, utility poles, retaining walls, etc. The elevation or differences in elevation on the surface is usually shown as contours. A contour line is a line that connects points of equal elevation.

There is usually a contour interval set, say 1-foot for conventional survey. “The topography of literature, the fact in fiction,is one of my pleasures -- I mean, where the living road enters the pages of a book, and you are able to stroll along both the real and imagined road.”.

Plat of Topography / Topographic Survey. A topographic survey is the delineation of horizontal and/or vertical locations of the existing natural or man-made features of a portion of the earth’s surface, subsurface or airspace and the graphic representation of the results of such delineation.

topographic data set is downloaded from the US Geological Survey’s servers every second of every day—a truly impressive record. Experts believe the mission achieved what conventional human mapmaking was unable to accomplish—the ability to generate uniform resolution, uniform accuracy elevation information for most of the Earth’s surface.

Human land use, such as livestock grazing, can have profound yet varied effects on wildlife interacting within common ecosystems, yet our understanding of land-use effects is often generalized from short-term, local studies that may not correspond with trends at.

ALTA/NSPS surveys and topographic surveys are two common types of surveys performed on plots of land. Both surveys provide important information about the land, and each survey is useful under different circumstances.

Choosing between the two depends on what you intend to do with the property since each is intended to provide specific information. Topographic maps are based on topographical surveys.

Performed at large scales, these surveys are called topographical in the old sense of topography, showing a variety of elevations and landforms. This is in contrast to older cadastral surveys, which primarily show property and governmental first multi-sheet topographic map series of an entire country, the Carte géométrique.

An assessment of the performance of the Agricultural sector and that of Kenya’s overall performance shows a very strong correlation when analyzed over several years.Land-use patterns and water resources in the borders of arid lands are mapped. Because of geometric fidelity, high resolution and stereoscopic coverage, the LFC is far superior to Landsat or any previously used Earth-orbiting photographic system for understanding arid land environments.
