Lake Tana basin
time coverage
2016/2017
Lake Tana basin is one of the most important watersheds of Nile basin. It is of great importance for the economy and politics of Ethiopia. In past decades, natural vegetation of Lake Tana basin was heavily destroyed for continuous expansion of cropland. Vegetation conservation and restoration have to be performed in order to protect natural environment and maintain the biodiversity in Lake Tana basin. To provide detailed information of actual vegetation for planning of vegetation conservation and restoration, in this research we mapped the vegetation of Lake Tana basin based on high spatial resolution images provided by Google earth and field survey data, through the approach of visual interpretation.
