This map is made from the Google earth satellite image accesses from the internet on 9th February 2017.
Satellite images contribute in providing several types of information needed for the assessment of ecosystem conditions including land cover mapping. The land cover mapping aims to mimic the earth surface in a possible way by delineating the different features as they exist in their natural environment. This map shows the broad Wazo hill Land cover/use map. The boundary is shown by the black line where the quarry borders the human settlements around it. The green area shows mature trees and or natural vegetation that have a great role in stocking carbon and hence contribute in mitigation of climate change
