Abstract

A comparative traditional-knowledge based contribution from a given socio-cultural group to the epistemological base of the land resource in Northern Senegal, is studied. The principles, methods and techniques of land resource survey, evaluation and planning for community development are explored. The examples, as outcomes from the plant - since it constitutes a synthetic land resource - are designed as a geographical information system to be an information support service for scientists, planners and decision-makers.
