OAXACA: CULTURAL & ECOLOGICAL DIVERSITY

(page under construction): Oaxaca is one of the most culturally and ecologically diverse places on earth. This page will describe some of this diversity….
El espaciomapa está hecho a partir de imágenes Landsat TM (mapeador temático) tomadas en el año de 1993 con una combinación de falso color normal que permite distinguir:  •En tonos rojo,  la vegetación cuando es verde.  •	En color azul tenue, las grandes localides urbanas.   •	En color negro, las presas y lagos cuando son profundos y transparentes, cuando no lo son, aparecen en tonos de azul.  •	En tonos rosa, las áreas de cultivo de riego en lugares planos.  •	En tonos blancos, áreas de cultivo de temporal.
light blue= urban areas red = green vegetation black= reservoirs and water pink = irrigated agriculture white = rain fed agriculture (Landsat TM, 1993)
