Abstract / Description of output

The potential of a pilot geographic information system (GIS) for the inventory and analysis of the potato crop distribution in eastern Scotland is assessed. Spatial and statistical analyses are used to describe and measure associations between the presence of a crop and a range of environmental conditions. These relationships can be explored interactively, and they can be used to describe and explain crop distribution and as the basis of predictive models of crop suitability or drought risk.
