The Valencian Mediterranean Region Land Use Recommendations map at scale 1:300.000 constitutes a support instrument for land use planning. The proposed Land Use Recommendations, elaborated from a pre-existing digital map of Land Capability, and taking into account actual and risk erosion gives seven Land Use Recommendations: Intensive Agricultural, Moderate Intensive Agricultural, Restricted Agricultural, Forest Use with Conditions, Afforestation, Natural Regeneration and Protection. New classes of Land Use Recommendations have been derived using a modelling environment based on GIS techniques. Results show that non-agricultural recommendations predominate (60%).
Key words: Land Use Planning, Geographical Information Systems, Land Use Recommendations, Valencian Mediterranean Region.
