Environmental Land Use Planning brings together leading scholars in the field of environmental problem solving to examine environmental problems and effects on land uses; analytical methods and tools in the field; and the role of governments, community grants and tradable permits in environmental planning. The chapters are based on empirical research from countries around the globe including Canada, USA, China, Nigeria, Germany, Serbia, Venezuela, and Brazil.
In order to ensure the effectiveness of land use planning, the information about land quality and land characteristics plays an important role. The application of information technology is one of the best solutions in the area of land use planning in which land unit database is considered firstly and seriously. The land unit database consists of spatial data and attribute data, both of which should follow the standard.
Spatial or territorial organization is one of effective tools for sustainable land use. Spatial organization of land use and environmental protection by functional sub-areas is performed on the basis of comprehensive and integrated research on characteristics and differentiation laws of natural components and landscapes, socio-economic factors, the present status and trend of environmental changes as well as the structures and functions of sub-areas. Uong Bi is a national center for tourism, coal mining and thermal power production.
Changes in the use of land reflect a variety of environmental and social factors, necessitating an equally varied suite of data to be used for effective analysis. While remote sensing, both from satellites and air photos, provides a central resource for study, socio-economic surveys, censuses, and map sources also supply a wealth of valid information. Land Use Change: Science, Policy and Management presents spacial theories and methodologies that support an integrated approach to the analysis of land use change.
A leading text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, this book introduces widely used forms of remote sensing imagery and their applications in plant sciences, hydrology, earth sciences, and land use analysis. The text provides comprehensive coverage of principal topics and serves as a framework for organizing the vast amount of remote sensing information available on the Web. Including case studies and review questions, the book's four sections and 21 chapters are carefully designed as independent units that instructors can select from as needed for their courses.
This paper presents the results of soil characteristics study and orientation for rational and sustainable use of major soil types in Thai Thuy District, Thai Binh Province, where is facing many environmental problems. The interactive process between river, sea and human activities over time has resulted in the characteristics of 10 soil types, which are grouped in 4 main classes (acid sulfate soil, saline soil, alluvial soil and sandy soil). They have been used for agricultural production (mainly for rice and other crops growing).
Landscape ecology has emerged in the past decade as an important and useful tool for land-use planners and landscape architects. While professionals and scholars have begun to incorporate aspects of this new field into their work, there remains a need for a summary of key principles and how they might be applied in design and planning.This volume fills that need. It is a concise handbook that lists and illustrates key principles in the field, presenting specific examples of how the principles can be applied in a range of scales and diverse types of landscapes around the world....

ABSTRACT. The Mekong Delta in the south of Vietnam is a highly dynamic landscape with rapid changes in land use. Costal forests of mangrove (Rhizophoraceae, Sonneratiaceae and Avicenniaceae) and the more inland Melaleuca forests are changed into shrimp ponds and rice fields.
The paper presents and discusses the methodology used and the results obtained by the application of the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) on a set of socio-economical and land use data collected in the Duy Tien district (Ha Nam province), Vietnam. Objective of this study is to use PCA as a data reduction method to verify if a relation could be established between the quantities of waste generated in a region and its land use and socio-economical characteristics.

Recently, the resettlement activities of Son La hydroelectric power station (SHPS) have been carrying out within three provinces: Son La, Lai Chau, and Dien Bien. The main problem is !hat with limited land fund for resett1emcnt (each household has about 1-2 ha of agricultural land in average ), the land use and argicultural production organization should be ensure favorable conditions for resettled people.

Landslides happen frequently in moutainous region, especially in the rainy season in tropical zone like Vietnam. The landslide can cause severe impact on land use and human activities in the highlands. Therefore, determining the damage of landslide is meaningful for local land users and officials to propose the best land use types in the specific area. Based on the economic methods, the damage of landslide was analysed specifically in Maichau District, Hoabinh Province, Vietnam.
Urban agriculture is significant to the history of the City of Detroit, from ribbon farms to Mayor Pingree’s famous potato patches of the nineteenth century, victory gardens to gardening angels of the twentieth century and a burgeoning of garden network capacity to gardening programs in the twenty-first century.
The discipline of Landscape Ecology is rapidly emerging as a motive force,
both in the domain of theoretical ecology, and in applied fields such as biodiversity
conservation planning. Without it and its further development, the
more reductionist elements of, and approaches to, ecology will continue to
make the discipline decreasingly relevant to land management, which will be
made totally on the basis of politics and socioeconomics.
