Map developed by IIASA LUC-Project.
Primary Data Sources: (1) State Land Administration of the People's Republic of China / United Nations Development Program / State Science and Technology Commission of the People's Republic of China / Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations: Land Resources - Use and Productivity Assessment in China. Project CPR/87/029, Beijing, 1994. (2) Institute for Remote Sensing Applications: Land-cover map of China. Beijing, 1994
These maps display cultivation intensities of major crops in China. They should provide a more realistic geographical representation of cultivation patterns, than can be derived from either statistical data or remote sensing information alone. These maps were developed at the LUC Project of the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) by combining statistical data on crop cultivation at county level (from the "Land Resources" project of the Chinese State Land Administration) with cropping area information from a recent digital land-cover map of the Chinese Institute for Remote Sensing Applications.
