Land Use Participatory Map of Hulu Pengkadan 2013

Dataset of Land Use Participatory Map of Hulu Pengkadan 2013. Once the participatory map of land cover had been completed, village volunteers drew the different land uses on the map. The spatial representations provide an approximation of where villagers undertake such activities. The agricultural and agroforestry land use area is a direct reflection of the land cover. Land uses within the primary and secondary forest include hunting and gathering non-timber forest products, such as rattan, and wild fruits and vegetables. Other activities, such as gathering timber or collecting durian and tengkawang, follow the river tributaries because of the ease and history of access and riparian ecosystem characteristics. Another land use is fallow where the land is intentionally being left to rest before being converted back to dry-rice and vegetable cultivation. In addition to the spatial data, social surveys deepen the understanding of this spatial land use and help further the comprehension of land cover dynamics.
