Abstract

The AA. describe a case study conducted at Nuevo San Juan Parangaricutiro, an indigenous forest community in the Paricutin area, in Michoacan. Specifically, they discuss the contribution of geomorphologic mapping (coupled with landscape knowledge) to natural resource management using geographic information system and remote sensing techniques. The analysis described in this paper was used to improve the mapping of forest quality units, and to explore the relationships between land suitability and land utilisation requirements for potential diversification of economic activities in the indigenous community
