Abstract: 
There is a growing concern over the degradation of natural and agro-ecosystems.In this case, land use studies form the basis for analysis of the causes leading to degradation of agro-ecosystem outputs, or deterioration of a natural ecosystem.This study combines the scientific research techniques of GIS and remote sensing as mapping tools, accompanied by ground observations involving site-specific semi structured interviews with local people familiar with the area and contact with local organizations. The information generated can be used to assist in making wise choices about land use, determining where best to locate new settlements, cropping, drainage, irrigation, where and when to apply new technologies, to explain spatial and temporal variations in output, and to respond to many other questions about management, use and conservation of the natural environment
