Field visit to farmer's land near Inapari, Peru to distinguish crop cover for remote sensing classification.
The study area encompasses two districts in Southeastern Peru, Iñapari and Iberia, in the province of Tahuamanu, Madre de Dios region and is located in the newly paved Inter-Oceanic Highway, which links the Brazilian southern state of Acre with Peru and is designed to cover a road extension of 1580 km from the Brazilian border to the Peruvian ports. However, this study is narrowed to the road axis Iñapari-Iberia, which covers an area of 2040 km² and an extension of approximately 70 km.
The climate is hot and tropical, seasonally humid, with abundant rains from October to March and a short dry season from June to September. Land-use patterns are associated with major productive activities and consist of slash and burn-based subsistence agriculture (mainly rice, beans, and maize), forest extraction, and to a lesser extent cattle ranching. The overall Madre de Dios region can be characterized by the following land uses: permanent crops (0.2%), extensive agriculture (0.5%), cultivated pasture for cattle ranching (3.4%), research units (0.1%), urban sectors (1%), and forest (94.8%).
