Abstract

In a context where agroecology has become an increasingly relevant alternative to promote sustainable and environmentally friendly agricultural practices, this project seeks to provide an efficient tool for mapping and visualizing agroecological crops in a specific geographic area, allowing farmers, researchers, and planners to evaluate and promote sustainable agricultural practices. This project will describe the methodology used for creating the thematic map, which will include data collection on agroecological crops through surveys and records, as well as the processing and analysis of this information within the Google Earth environment. The accuracy and reliability of the mapping technology used will be evaluated, ensuring that the results are dependable and precise. The obtained results will provide a clear and accessible visual representation of the spatial distribution of agroecological crops, thereby facilitating informed decision-making for agricultural planning and the promotion of sustainable practices. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the promotion and practical application of agroecology by providing a useful and easily accessible tool for mapping agroecological crops in a specific geographic area. The hope is to foster interest in sustainable agriculture and encourage the adoption of environmentally friendly practices in the agricultural sector, thus contributing to a more sustainable and equitable future in agriculture.
