Land cover mapping is a semantic segmentation problem: each pixel in an aerial or satellite image must be classified into one of several land cover classes. These classes describe the surface of the earth and are typically broad categories such as “forest” or “field”. High-resolution land cover data (≤1m / pixel) is essential in many sustainability-related applications. Its uses include informing agricultural best management practices, monitoring forest change over time and measuring urban sprawl. However, land cover maps quickly fall out of date and must be updated as construction, erosion, and other processes act on the landscape.

Land cover maps constitute a necessary tool for development planning and management of the territory. Furthermore, land cover maps depicting the current reality are a must in countries where, due to political changes, rapid dynamic phenomena have taken place, resulting in a complete restructuring of the agricultural and other sectors, as in the case of Bulgaria.

Focuses on two themes in the study of ethnopedology: (1) the hows and whys of indigenous soil classifications. (2) the differences and overlaps between indigenous soil classifications and western soil classifications. Aims to come to a synthesis of how to link the two sources of information to improve the success of cooperation in sustainable agricultural development.

The habitat of tsetse fly (Glossina spp.) depends upon climatic conditions, host

availability and land cover characteristics. In this paper, the Land Cover Classification

System (LCCS), developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the

United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is proposed as a tool to harmonize
