Property and Trail Maps

Module by: John Janovec. E-mail the author

Summary: A satellite image of the los amigos conservation area property and trail maps.

Figure 1: During July-September 2002, the Los Amigos Botany Project initiated a collaboration with Mathias Tobler, who is now working at the American Museum of Natural History GIS laboratory in New York City. This collaboration will serve various purposes while working towards several interrelated, interdisciplinary research aims, some of which are provided in the following figures. This scene shows one of the products of the new collaborative research program: a georefenced trail map system of the Los Amigos Biological Station and adjacent property (white lines). Notice the large purple-blue zone (yellow star) in the center of the satellite image; it is a wetland ecosystem characterized by a transition between mixed flooded forest and a mono-dominant stand of the Aguaje Palm (Mauritia flexuosa- Arecaceae). Aguaje Palm swamps, also known as "aguajales", are a dominant factor in the landscape of the Peruvian Amazon, including the Madre de Dios basin.
