L-02 Landform of selected study areas in Somaliland and Southern Somalia
SWALIM reference Library
A key outcome of this study is a new landform dataset for the selected areas of interest (AOI). The mapping of landforms was carried out at a semi detailed scale of 1:50 000 to 1:100 000 and currently constitutes the most recent, detailed and consistent dataset over large portions of the Somali territory. Landscape and relief were mapped through visual interpretation of satellite images combined with geomorphometry. The report contains two landform maps, one for each of the two study areas. The report can be used for natural resource inventory and management. It has potential applications in soil and land cover mapping and land suitability assessment.
