Abstract
An integrated survey of the Guhiya catchment, in the arid zone of Western Rajasthan, had previously been completed, and the results represented as major- land resource units. This paper describes how these were evaluated to produce land suitability maps for three major kinds of land use: arable farming, pasture and livestock production, and woodland forestry. Combined scrutiny or overlay of these maps shows suitability for alternative uses. Being easy to understand by planners and users, such maps may find ready adoption for practical appl1cation.
