Develop a classification system for illustrating the current degradation status of the different vegetation types in the Little Karoo. Use the classification system to generate a map of Little Karoo vegetation degradation status, in terms of grazing impacts and current land use, using a combination of multi-resolution and multi-temporal satellite imagery. Produce a transformation map of the Little Karoo, suitable for 1:50,000 scale mapping and modeling applications, which describes the spatial extent of transformation within each vegetation unit.

Strategic Direction: 3 Retain and restore critical biodiversity in areas under greatest land-use pressure
