Bio-Eco-Analysis for Risk Factors using GIS Software

Razvan Serbu, Sorin Borza, Bogdan Marza


Agriculture is a business sector ideally suited for the application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) because it is natural resource based, requires the movement, distribution, and/or utilization of large quantities of products, goods, and services, and is increasingly required to record details of its business operations from the field to the marketplace. Nearly all agricultural data has some form of spatial component, and a GIS allows you to visualize information that might otherwise be difficult to interpret. Environment has a major impact on agriculture. In this paper we presented how GIS software can be used to analyze risk factors that influence agricultural production naturally. Natural risk factors were taken into account are: land degradation, flooding, humidity, action on farmland of the wildlife. The conclusions drawn from this paper using GIS allows the adoption of important measures on a short or long time to reduce natural risk factors on agricultural production. The advantage of this model is possibility to bee extended to national, regional and global area.
