Title: Kenya Administrative Units, Drainage, Agro-Climatic Zones, Rainfall, Infrastructure
Description:
Abstract:
Description: These datasets (Administrative Units, Drainage, Agro-Climatic Zones, Rainfall, Infrastructure) were scanned by the Canadian Land data Systems Division, Land Directorate, Dept of Environment, Ottawa, Canada. This was in response to the request to GRID by the Kenya Ministry of Agriculture to assist in creating the datasets. The source information and scales are varied; Rivers, Agroecological Zones, Soils, Boundaries, Towns, Lakes, Transport, and the Districts, Provinces (administrative boundary), Elevation were based on the scale of 1: 1 000 000 and of which the source information was derived from Ministry of Agriculture and Survey of Kenya maps. The Landuse dataset was based on the Kenya Rangeland Ecological Monitoring Unit (KREMU now DRSRS) map at the scale of 1: 1 000 000.The Mean Annual Rainfall dataset was based on an East Africa map(1966) at the scale of 1: 2 000 000 Rainfall data was originally provided by Kenya Meteorological Department. These were collected from a total of 79 Stations for the period between 1982-1988. More records were added by GRID which extended the period to 1991 The data consists of the rainfall,Potential Evapotranspiration (PET) and Temperature information. Sample Files: RAINFALL.E00 FILL8291.PLU, PETALL.DBF/.NDX, ADD82,83,84,85,86.DAT (Others available on request) Vector Members: - Files are in an ArcInfo Export format
