Title: Laikipia (Kenya) Research Programme GIS Datasets
Description:
Abstract:
Laikipia Research Programme GIS Datasets are divided into two main different study area scales: the Regional level [Laikipia district, the Ewaso Ng'iro Basin] and the Local level [Land parcels-farm(s), catchments of a few kilometer square]. Coordinate Reference System Coverage data is organized thematically as a series of layers. The coordinate reference systems used in LRP dataset are:- (a) global coordinate system - Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM), (b) Local coordinate system. Digitizing Scale and Fuzzy Tolerance The initial digitizing scale for the LRP GIS Dataset is dependent on the scale of the study areas. There are two major research levels carried by LRP namely Regional and Local. The scales used for regional level are 1:250,000 and 1:50,000. FUZZY TOLERANCE is the minimum distance between coordinates in a coverage. The resolution of a coverage is defined by the minimum distance separating the coordinates used to store coverage features. Resolution is limited by the map scale in initial digitizing. The fuzzy tolerance can be calculated as follows for digitizing table: Initial Scale for Coverage of Fuzzy Tolerance Digitizing Units Value 1;250,000 Meters 6.35 1:50,000 Meters 1.25 1:10,000 Meters 0.25 1:5,000 Meters 0.125 1:2,500 Meters 0.0625 Files: Roads.E00 (Roads) Settle.E00 (Settlement Pattern) Centres.E00 (Urban Centres) (other files exist also)
