Ring, Noel, Ed.
This manual is designed to assist schools and organizations in gaining a better understanding of land use at the community, state, and national levels. The manual emphasizes interpretation of maps and photo-imagery to analyze the geographic concepts relating to landscape. The manual promotes the use of local government publications from the U.S. Geological Survey, the U.S. Soil Conservation Service, and state extension services, and the use of space photographs and satellite imagery. The manual lists projects and activities for land use study in social studies, science, vocational agriculture, humanities, environmental education, and 4-H groups. Thorough lists of documentary materials, audio-visual aids, and other resources are included. (MR)
