Village volunteers created participatory maps of land cover for their villages, identifying the different land covers and their vegetation types. After the first draft of the map, a ground check was necessary to geo-reference the main features (rivers, villages, and roads, etc.,). The maps were digitized using GIS software and verified by the villagers. The land covers represent the current land cover of lands dedicated to rotating agriculture. A typical agricultural rotation begins with the forest being converted to dry rice fields. The rotation cycle includes a 3-year period of dry rice cultivation, resting and a regrowth period (fallow), or a 25-year period of rubber cultivation. Other cultivated lands, in addition to the area for rotating agriculture, include wet rice fields and agroforests with tengkawang (Borneo tallow nut from the genus Shorea) and/or durian (genus Durio) being the predominant species.
