Using Remote Sensing and GIS Techniques in Counting, Representing the Areas of the Agricultural Lands and Classifying the Crops, Case Study: Technical Presentation for a Project in KSA

Mostafa A-B Ebrahim [5] | Mohammed S. Elmanadely

Abstract: Due torapid population growth and limited water resources, it became essential to manage the available scarce water resources in a rational way. Agriculture activities represent the major water demand in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) with a percentage more than 80% of total demands. Therefore, the use of new techniques such as Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are currently considered as powerful tools within Integrated Water Resources (IWR) planning and management. The main objective of this research is to provide a methodology for using such techniques for counting, representing, and classifying crops for estimation of the agriculture demand for water in KSA. A case study is provided to demonstrate this methodology based on technical presentation of a project in KSA.
