The use of geographical information systems and image processing techniques for the analysis of aerial photographs and vegetation survey data in African dry-woodland research
A case study is presented in which geographical information systems and related technologies are described and evaluated for detecting changes in the cover and structure of dryland woodland formations in eastern Africa. The case study forms part of a research project to investigate the regeneration ecology of Acacia tortilis and vegetation dynamics of woodland formations in drylands of northern Kenya.
