Topography & Mapping Module
This module covers farm geography and climate, emphasizing the impact of geographical factors on farming practices and ecosystem dynamics. Participants learn to integrate topographical analysis into design decisions. It explores topography's role in water management, studying how landforms affect water movement and drainage. Practical skills include obtaining topographical maps from Google Earth, mapping landscapes with drones, and creating virtual terrains in VectorWorks. The focus is on informed decision-making for water catchment and conservation, tailored to the farm's unique topography. The module provides hands-on experience in spatial analysis and design, offering practical skills for participants.
