Download the Interactive Land Use/Change Maps - Make your own maps!

This document provides a set of maps that represent the resulting land cover maps of the analysis of Malawi. The PDF format utilized allows for the creation of maps based on the user's preferences. The maps within this report include:

- Land Cover Use

- Maize Suitability Over Sm.Ag.Tob.Maize* Area

- Soil Erosion Rates

- Water Stress

* Small holder agriculture, tobacco and maize [a land class representing the areas dominated by mixed maize-tobacco production by small holder and estate production].

The maps have been created to cater for the specific needs of the users, allowing them to create map images of their choosing. The format also allows for direct comparison of changes between the different scenarios modeled as part of the IALUO Scenario Analyses.
